I’m working on researching the aftermath of the 1999 Seattle WTO protests, and I came across this overview of internet protesting at the time. I found bits and pieces of it hilarious, especially Mike Moore’s comments:

“I am deeply concerned about the recent appearance of anonymous websites which copy important design features of the WTO’s official Web sites,” said WTO Director-General Mike Moore in the statement. “This causes confusion among visitors looking for genuine information from the WTO, disrupting a much-needed democratic dialogue.”

Also, I can’t lie – the bit about trying to rally people in LA to put “FREE PARKING” bags on the parking meters all around the city — it’s BRILLIANT. Who’s with me?! I love it!
