30 Frames a second: the wto in seattle
It was late November in Seattle in 1999. A global convention of trade delegates, known as the World Trade Organization (WTO), converged for their annual meeting in the city known for its welcoming and tolerant personality. Waiting for them in the streets were more than 50,000 demonstrators. What happened in Seattle that week made history. The demonstrators staged a popular uprising that shut down the WTO and changed the way police and governments deal with mass demonstrations throughout the world. 30 Frames a Second: The WTO in Seattle, is a compelling first-person account of the events that unfolded during that week. It’s told from the perspective of 15-year veteran network news cameraman Rustin Thompson, who covered the WTO as an independent journalist. It is the story of how Thompson’s objective point-of-view evolved into a subject account of what became an unscheduled, unruly outbreak of democracy.
