10 years ago, in November 1999 an alliance of direct action activists, environmentalists and trade unionists shut down the meeting of the World Trade Organisation in Seattle, stopping the next trade round of Capitalist Globalisation. In the process they sparked a Movement of Movements right across the globe its slogan became ‘Another World is Possible’.
The exhibition celebrates a decade of creative resistance.
As part of the Festival of Radical Communication I will be chairing a session on Sunday 15th November 11am:
The panel includes photojournalist and investigative journalist Marc Vallée, film and print journalist Jason Parkinson and filmmaker Shaun Day.
“This panel looks at the impact of digital photographic tools on reporting events, particularly post-G20 and how the State is trying to criminalise image taking and the ways photographers are getting organised to resist this. This will be interspersed with photo shows and film clips from the archives of some of the key movements photographers and filmmakers.”
