Program #NADR-ETAL001. Recorded in Seattle, WA on November 30, 1999.
The World Trade Organization ministerial meeting in Seattle generated an enormous amount of media attention, controversy and some of the biggest protests in decades. WTO supporters say that free trade, the unimpeded flow of goods, services and capital, results in broad economic and social benefits. The elimination of trade barriers lifts poor people out of poverty. Opponents say that the WTO undermines democracy, threatens food safety, weakens workers' rights and degrades the environment. An historic debate took place in Seattle's Town Hall.
