5 December 1999 - WTO confrontation

< yesterday -- tomorrow >

Reporter: As the World Trade Organization meeting breaks up in failure, we sought out representatives of the larger confrontation. What brought you to Seattle?
Protester: The thrill of agony, the victory of defeat.
Reporter: And you?
Delegate: The sweet scent of stalemate. What could 135 governments all agree on?
Protester: Nothing good, I can tell you that much.
Delegate: Yeah, probably. Say, wanna go out for a beer?
Protester: Sure, I know a good place that still has windows.
