Description
The 1999 World Trade Organization Ministerial trade talks in Seattle became a battleground both inside and outside the convention center as protestors marched against global corporate interests and developing nations lobbied for their economic interests against established national powers. Kari Fantasia, a representative from the U.S. Alliance for Trade Expansion, used this ID badge at the 1999 WTO Ministerial in Seattle as their coalition members lobbied for rules that would be advantageous to their businesses.
