WTO/Seattle

20th!
november 30 will be the 20th anniversary of the Battle of Seattle. i wonder if we'll have some kind of "homecoming" to mark the occasion. WTO/Seattle accelerated anti-corporate action, & was the beginning of worldwide Indymedia, too. it was cool to be part of history. sometimes i think i can still smell tear gas & pepper spray in my 88 Reliant.

no more anti-corporate organizing exists in the U.S. left 23.Oct.2019 16:56

thanks den mark for your efforts but due to leftist brains pickled in the formaldehyde of Identity Politics there won't be any 'revival' anytime soon :

meanwhile the Federal Reserve just today increased its temporary overnight bank repo operations to $120 billion a day from the current $75 billion. Total collapse is imminent.

Of the two New Deals -- the one from the 1930s and today's Green one -- only the first was treated in its time as a response to the economic equivalent of a category five hurricane.

Happy reading and happy research! Academia.edu with 23 million papers could be the people's publisher!

Indymedia was born in those protests in Seattle and has survived the harassment and server thefts by the FBI. I salute all those that gave me a platform to publish on. I am indebted to you forever. Thank you.
