A collection of short essays celebrating and reclaiming the story of WTO resistance. Media distortions and activist myths are investigated and refuted by award-winning authors Rebecca and David Solnit. Before the tear gas settled, the real battle had begun: over whose version of history would triumph. These pithy insights into media spin and truth provide a timely re-assessment of the ongoing image of the Seattle protests and question the brazen lies that continue to appear in the mainstream press.
