In November, 2003, trade ministers from 34
countries met in Miami, Florida, to negotiate the
Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA). The
FTAA threatens to devastate workers, the
environment, and public services like health care,
education, and water, and to destroy indigenous
rights and cultural diversity across North, Central,
and South America.

Thousands of union members, environmentalists,
feminists, anarchists, students, farm workers,
media activists, and human rights activists who
gathered in Miami to struggle against the FTAA
were brutally attacked with rubber bullets, pepper
spray, electric guns and shock batons, embedded
reporters and information warfare, all coordinated
by the new United States Department of
Homeland Security.

Collectively, Indymedia activists and friends shot
hundreds of hours of video footage documenting
the FTAA protests in Miami. This footage is being
edited by the FTAA Miami Video Working Group
into a documentary that will cut through the mass
media blackout to reveal the brutal repression and
assault on civil liberties that took place, as well as
the life-affirming and inspiring alternatives to
capitalist globalization that were also in full effect
in Miami.
