Battle of Seattle Revisited

If you thought the anti-war rally this weekend in Denver was lackluster at best, it might be time to look back at "real" protests.

The new film, Battle In Seattle, reenacts the events around the 1999 WTO protest in Seattle. Based on what people who have seen it have said about it, it looks interesting and seems accurate.

The film will be opening:

September 19: New York, San Francisco and Seattle
September 26: Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Detroit, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Sacramento and Washington, DC.

Groups of 25 or more receive discount tickets. To find a theater near you call 866-758-1258 or visit www.battleinseattlemovie.com/labor

To organize an event around the film's release, contact Michael Crawford at 202-546-4996 or mcrawford@citizen.org

A also very good documentary about Seattle/WTO protest: "This is What Democracy Looks Like" directed by Rick Rowley starring Noam Chomsky.

Hopefully this film opens sometime in San Diego.
