(en) Canada, Ottawa, ON. The Battle of Seattle - 7 years later - Sunday, Feb 5

Thye Film "This is What Democracy Looks Like" followed by discussion
Date/Time/Location -- Sunday, Feb 5/2006 @ 1:30pm
Jack Purcell Community Centre (near Elgin and Gilmour), Ottawa, ON
In 1999 tens of thousands of people converged on Seattle raise their voice
in protest against the destructive economic policies of the World Trade
Organization. This was the beginning of the global justice movement which
has grown to take on US imperialism as well as many local struggles against
the devastating consequences of "free" trade and neoliberalism. We will be
watching the film "This is What Democracy Looks Like" which documents the
events on the streets of Seattle in 1999 and in the discussion we will be
discussing the successes and failings of the global justice movement which
emerged after the events in Seattle.


The Anarchist Discussion Group meets every second Sunday afternoon. We
are local Ottawa activists and community members who share an
anti-authoritarian viewpoint. We are involved in diverse struggles and
believe in the importance maintaining a link between theory and practice.
Discussions are based on readings, presentations or short films. If
there are readings, they are optional and will be summarized at the
beginning of the discussion. Printouts of readings are available from OPIRG
at U of O.

All are welcome. Accessible! Child-friendly!
