ABSTRACT
In the third week of April 2003, there was traffic in front of Rockefeller Center in New York city when antiwar demonstrators staged a “die-in” to protest NBC coverage of the U.S. war in Iraq. A repeat performance is scheduled this week as the group, which calls itself the March 27th 2003 Coalition, camps out at the Carlyle Group LLP's offices at Fifth Avenue and 58th Street. “There is a concern that these companies are making blood money,” says Lou Palumbo, director of the Elite Group Ltd., a security firm. “Targeted firms will have to deal with the perception that these protests create. And they have to deal with safety issues for their executives and for their people going to and from work.” “There is a concern that these companies are making blood money,” says Lou Palumbo, director of The Elite Group Ltd., a security firm. “Targeted firms will have to deal with the perception that these protests create.
