    Anarchy Afternoons: Breaking the Spell (1999 Seattle WTO doc)

    3PM-6PMA-Space 4722 Baltimore Ave

    It's been 20 years so, this week, we are going to look back at the Battle of Seattle aka the 1999 Seattle WTO protests. We will be watching the classic documentary Breaking the Spell and a few shorter videos.

    For many anarchists in North America, the events in Seattle signaled a new phase of street action. The actions in Seattle informed and inspired anarchist engagement with the anti-globalization movement and other demonstrations in North America for years after. Not to mention that the tactics developed in this period still shape anarchist activity 20 years later.

    We will watch this documentary and discuss the events in 1999 to consider what is still relevant now. What can we get from taking another look at this stage of anarchist organizing? Is there any remaining untapped potential or lessons still to be learned?

    Anarchy Afternoons begins at Friday 3:00pm
    Documentary 3:30
    Shorter film clips 5-6pm
