November 30th 1999
The mobilisation against the Third Ministerial Conference of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) which took place in Seattle in November 1999 has been hailed across the globe as a victory. For four days tens of thousands brought chaos to the streets of Seattle, shutting down the Conference’s opening ceremony, defying the National Guard and braving the tear gas. Meanwhile people across the globe were taking co-ordinated action against a common enemy: the neoliberal economy.
Capitalism? No Thanks! We will burn your fucking banks!
