Miami Model

In November, 2003, trade ministers from 34 countries met in Miami, Florida to negotiate the Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA). The FTAA threatens to devastate workers, the environment, and public services and to destroy indigenous rights and cultural diversity across North, Central, and South America. Thousands of union members, environmentalists, media activists, and others gathered in Miami to protest the FTAA and were brutally attacked with rubber bullets, pepper spray, electric guns and shock batons. Collectively, Indymedia members shot hundreds of hours of video footage documenting the protest. This footage was edited by the FTAA Miami Video Working Group into a documentary that cuts through the mass media blackout to reveal the brutal repression and assault on civil liberties that took place, as well as the life-affirming and inspiring alternatives to capitalist globalization that were also in full effect in Miami.
