CAGJ’s roots are in the 1999 Battle in Seattle, when activists shut down the WTO (World Trade Organization) on November 30, 1999. The week-long protests led to the collapse of the talks that were aimed at further consolidating corporate power. On the 22nd anniversary of this powerful people’s uprising, we invite you to join a screening of the best documentary about the protests, “This is What Democracy Looks Like”, co-produced by CAGJ member Jill Friedberg. Join us after the film to share your favorite CAGJ stories, both past & present! Folks are welcome to join part 1 and/or part 2 of this virtual event. Registration is required to receive the Zoom link.
