Read our collection of reflections by local leaders and organizers, Looking Back, Looking Forward: The Legacy of the Battle for Seattle.
15 years ago on November 30, tens of thousands of people from all walks of life converged on the streets of Seattle and took a stand against the WTO. Unions, environmentalists, faith-based groups, students, stood together to proclaim: trade affects us all, and it should not benefit the rich at the expense of working families, the poor, and the planet.
Today, once again, millions are raising their voices with the same message as neoliberal NAFTA-style trade models proliferate around the globe. Can we bring the spirit of the WTO protests — unity, urgency, people power — to finally demand that space be given for the creation of a new model of trade?
Join Washington Fair Trade Coalition and our allies at a series of events this November looking at the legacy of the WTO protests and how we can continue to carry the banner in the face of massive, secret, corporate-negotiated agreements like the TPP, TTIP, and TISA.
December 2, 3:30 – 6, Seattle
