WTO Campaign

In late November 1999, tens of thousands of environmental activists, trade unionists, faith-based activists and others gathered in the streets of Seattle to protest the Millenium Round of meetings being held by the World Trade Organization, the international body charged with creating and enforcing trade agreements among many of the world's nations. Activists accused the WTO of being undemocratic, undermining environmental regulations and promoting anti-labor and anti-human rights policies. The Internet figured heavily in the mobilization.
