The Chicago Tribune notes in a lead editorial that the gaggle of assorted protesters assembled in Genoa, Italy has some explaining to do. While they claim to be protesting on behalf of the poor and displaced, they are standing in the way of the open trade markets which would solve these third-world problems. This includes their lock-step stand against genetically improved foods. President Bush has scolded them publically, saying that “instead of addressing policies that help the poor,” they “embrace policies that lock poor people into poverty.” We agree with the Tribune that this “ought to be unacceptable to any group that professes to want to help the poor.”
