Activists1 to Try to Break Through Barriers at G-8 Summit

World leaders will soon begin arriving in the Italian port city of Genoa for a three-day meeting of the seven largest industrialized democracies plus Russia. Activists opposed to globalization are 1)signaling they plan to break through steel 2)barriers that have been erected2 in a four-square-kilometer zone around the summit 3)venue3. 4)Sporadic marches on Thursday kicked off what organizers say will be a wave of demonstrations5 during the summit. Local authorities fear some protests could turn violent.
As thousands of police and other security personnel 5)patrolled the streets and squares of Genoa, one of the more 6)radical groups involved in the protest movement announced it intends to storm parts of the city center that have been 7)sealed off to everyone but 8)delegates to the summit, journalists, Italian authorities and local residents.
The Tute Bianche, or White Overalls6 group, has 9)vowed to scale or topple the steel and concrete barricades7 that block access into the so-called red zone near the 13th Century Ducal Palace, where the Group of Eight leaders begin their summit Friday. Luca Casarini, the head of Tute Bianche, told Italian television Thursday police will have to use violence to stop his people from "retaking the downtown area".
Genoa's inner city is 10)ringed by four-meter-high barriers that have blocked off dozens of narrow streets and 11)alleys. Police erected the barriers to prevent a repetition of the violence that marred9 a European Union summit in Gothenburg, Sweden last month.
Mr. Casarini has called on the security forces to disobey orders and let his people into the red zone so they can vent8 their anger at the G8 leaders, whom they accuse of oppressing workers and farmers and keeping Third World countries 12)mired in poverty. He says up to 10,000 activists will carry 13)Plexiglas shields Friday to break through the security barriers. On Tuesday, Mr. Casarini warned that thousands of protesters wearing gas masks and motorcycle helmets would storm the summit venue.
Italian authorities are not taking his threat lightly. As many as 20,000 police, 14)paramilitary troops and other uniformed personnel are preparing for the worst. But Mr. Casarini has promised that demonstrators will not carry weapons or break any windows.
Thousands of demonstrators are already in the city, and more continue to arrive. Many residents are staying home or have left town to avoid 15)clashes between police and demonstrators.
Meanwhile, on Thursday, opponents of Iran's government 16)staged a demonstration4 protesting public executions in that country. Signs carried by the demonstrators urged G8 leaders not to back President Mohammed Khatami, whom they called the smiling face of a 17)repressive 18)regime.
Later in the day, another demonstration protesting what marchers called a denial of rights by rich countries to immigrants from poor nations attracted thousands of people. But police say they are more concerned about mass demonstrations scheduled for Friday and Saturday in which most of the 800 or so groups united under the anti-globalization umbrella are expected to take part.
