N30 / The Battle of Seattle / WTO Protest

The Battle of Seattle movie comes out this Friday, below is the trailer. I'm excited... and a bit fearful of watching this. I was right down in the action all day N30 taking photos, getting maced, marching, chanting, facing the violent cops... it was such an intense day and experience, really that whole week, it will be interesting to see how it is portrayed. Here in Seattle, this event, this massive protest (or riot in some people's minds), this giant step for the anti-globalization and American activist movement, changed us forever. I hope they did it justice. I'll be scanning in my photos in the coming week I took on the streets of the protesters, police, fire and mayhem.

It's getting largely negative reviews. I wouldn't get your hopes up.

The Gary Locke accent is simply unforgivable though.

I don't really care what the reviews say. I saw the other clips and now there is this BRAND NEW clip on www.battleinseattlemovie.com/join and it looks GOOD!

Ooooh, that one is way more intense. Yeah, it's not like everyone commenting isn't going to see it anyway :)
