"I was not part of any of the confrontations with police. That said, I note that the protesters in the movie photos look much more aggressive towards police than in the real photos, where the groups are mostly separate, or protesters are moving out of tear gassed areas. As I understand it, the purpose was to block streets, not to fight with police."
—Sharon Booth, YES! Circulation Design Manager

"Well-organized affinity groups occupied intersections around the WTO Ministerial venue. Each group knew how to make its own decisions, each had back up, and each group had an unrelenting goal—to keep the WTO from opening its meeting by keeping delegates from reaching the convention center."
—Sarah van Gelder, YES! Executive Editor
