Shaping SF Public Talk: Seattle/WTO Shutdown—20th Anniversary

On November 30, 1999 the World Trade Organization was prevented from meeting in Seattle by unprecedented phalanxes of self-organized protesters who filled the streets, tied up key intersections, blockaded the convention center, and used video and the internet in ways they’d never been used before. Bay Area activists were in the middle of it all, and veterans of that experience will revisit that moment to help us rethink this moment.

With Anuradha Mittal, David Solnit, Eddie Yuen, Steve Stallone, and Starhawk.
