On November 30th, 1999 there was scheduled to be a huge World Trade Organization meeting in Seattle. This would start a new round of trade talks which was to be a huge step in globalization. The WTO talks were quickly overshadowed by the largest globalization-protest in america. There was an estimated 40,000 people who showed for this. The protest was initiated by a small anarchist group from Eugene, Oregon.
I found some neat YOUTUBE videos from the protest. Here is one of them.
