Thousands of protesters gathered in Brussels on Tuesday to demonstrate against planned European Union trade deals with the United States and Canada, following a similar protest last week in Germany. Union members, environmentalists, rights activists, farming groups and ordinary citizens snarled rush-hour traffic in the heart of the Belgian capital to denounce the deals, which they say will harm working people and benefit large corporations.
