Battle in Seattle
Battle in Seattle – DVD Review
Activists arrive in Seattle, Washington en masse to protest a meeting of the World Trade Organization. Riots and chaos ensue as demonstrators successfully stop the WTO meetings.
“Battle in Seattle” made me long for my days of activism, and reminds me of their spontaneity, from years of being a participant. “Battle in Seattle” proved that any well-organized demonstration is in fact, just that, well-organized. This is a story of the Battle in Seattle with Ray Liotta heading a great cast that shows different aspects of what it takes to protest world domination by corporations. It seems particularly appropriate, even more so than when it was made, given the fuss with the economy right now. Four stars.
