SEATTLE -- Protesters have successfully delayed the opening session of the World Trade Organization's meeting here, using human barricades, marches and almost any peaceful means at their disposal. Tens of thousands of people, ranging from Teamsters, who say the organization's trade agreements are unfair to U.S. workers, to Earth Firsters, who argue they damage the environment, have descended on the Emerald City. And with some demonstrators on stilts, others hoisting a large whale and several king-sized vegetables seized by police, Seattle really does bear an uncanny resemblance to Oz.
