Anlässlich der Gegenproteste zur NATO-Sicherheitskonferenz 2015 zeigen wir im Infoladen den Film „This Is What Democracy Looks Like“ welcher die Proteste gegen den WTO-Gipfel in Seattle 1999 zum Thema macht. Der Film dauert 72 Minuten und ist auf englisch. Beginn: 20:00 Uhr!

This film, shot by 100 amateur camera operators, tells the story of the enormous street protests in Seattle, Washington in November 1999, against the World Trade Organization summit being held there. Vowing to oppose, among other faults, the WTO’s power to arbitrally overrule nations‘ environmental, social and labour policies in favour of unbridled corporate greed, protestors from all around came out in force to make their views known and stop the summit. Against them is a brutal police force and a hostile media as well as the stain of a minority of destructively overzealous comrades. Against all odds, the protesters bravely faced fierce opposition to take back the rightful democratic power that the political and corporate elite of the world is determined to deny the little people.
