September 18, 2003 - The Baltimore Sun, by John Cavanagh and Robin Broad:

"India, Brazil, China and nearly two dozen other poor nations, representing more than half of the globe's population, negotiated as a bloc. With backing from a wide array of citizen groups, they rejected the meeting's final text which, as usual, was crafted to address the corporate interests of richer nations. In short, the many derailed a trade agenda for the few.
A number of these poor country governments, which came to be known as the Group of 21, were responding to strong campaigns from citizen groups in their countries for a dramatic shift in the globalization agenda."
