WTO History Project
is a data and interview archive documenting the activities of those who organized
and participated in the public demonstrations at the World trade Organization
ministerial meetings held in Seattle in 1999. CCCE was a partner in the funding,
design, and conduct of this research.
The project is housed in the Harry
Bridges Center for Labor Studies at the University
of Washington. The project gathers interviews and primary source materials
used to document the organization of the WTO protests held in Seattle
to protest the WTO Ministerial meeting in late 1999. Their unique collection
of interviews with protest organizers and participants sheds light on
the behind-the-scenes cooperative (and sometimes contentious) relationships
among social movement organizations involved in the protests.
