We are asking for your help in getting a powerful story about activism and trade into our local San Diego area theater.

Opening next week, Battle in Seattle covers the events of November 1999, when tens of thousands of demonstrators took to the streets in protest of the World Trade Organization Our activism changed the course of trade and globalization.

The top-notch cast of this independent movie includes a beleaguered mayor (Ray Liotta), a riot cop on the streets (Woody Harrelson) and his pregnant wife (Charlize Theron).  Stuart Townsend put this project together to mobilize people into action, but as an Indi flick on a budget, we don’t enjoy the benefits of a huge studio distribution.  So, put simply — If we can get 200 people to request the movie in your area, they will bring it. 

To bring the movie to San Diego, visit and click on the “Demand It” icon.  Fill in your zip and info.  That’s it! 

You can also see the trailer at the website, or catch it on you tube at

I hope you’ll spend 30 seconds right now to click on the link, help educate people about fair trade policy, and bring this movie to your area.
