"The people I'm really trying to fight are the ones who destroy so much, and they hurt so many lives... Literally, millions."May 3 2011

In Stuart Townsend's fascinaing true story of BATTLE IN SEATTLE, acts of vandalism and a violent, wide-reaching police response to them destroy an intended "peaceful" demonstration against the World Trade Organization's summit talks. However, the protestors' planned shutting down of certain streets to choke the conference into failure is just another form of anarchy. Cops continue to bash heads and amidst total chaos, hundreds are arrested.
The upshot of this four days of craziness is all subsequent WTO meetings have better security and demonstrators can't get near the events or disrupt traffic.
Parenthetical number preceding title is a 1 to 10 imdb viewer poll rating.
