Shutdown WTO 20 - A website documenting Seattle 1999
https://www.shutdownwto20.org/

A small group of co-founders and core organizers of the Direct Action Network, the organization that called for the shutdown of the WTO conference twenty years ago, put the #ShutdownWTO20 site together to share their reflections from a critical moment in movement history: with historical narratives from people who organized locally and regionally; articles and resources developed over the last 20 years; and new analysis to support collective efforts to look forward to the next 20 years and plan for our futures.

((( Indymedia is included very briefly )))
