Battle in Seattle is a new film by Stuart Townsend that tells the stories of a dozen fictional characters whose lives intersect over the course of the 1999 WTO Ministerial in Seattle. Today, as then, the WTO represents the very economic model that is collapsing before our eyes. The crisis in the housing and finance sectors are but the latest example of an economy based on the wrong values. As the protest signs read, it's time to put "People Before Profits."
