Event organizers note, "We often are called to look back to the 1960s for lessons. But what of the 1990s and the movements at the turn of the millennium?"
It's been 20 years since the Battle of Seattle, and robust campaigns against global corporate rule continue to make impacts and inroads. If we are hoping that 2020 is the start of a period of major change for the better across borders and issues, what can we draw from this history to help make that happen?
Participants in the conversation will be Bill Fletcher, Jr., Shannon Gleeson, Hillary Lazar, Ben Manski, Suren Moodliar, Jackie Smith, Norman Stockwell, and Lesley Wood in conversation. You can register in advance here.
The speakers will be referencing a recent special issue of the journal Socialism and Democracy focusing on "Movements at the Millenium: Seattle +20".
