Thanksgiving, shmanksgiving. The real date for unrepentant radicals to mark at the end of this month is the one-year anniversary of the Battle in Seattle against the WTO.

The helpful folks at CITIACTION, an activist group targetting financial behemoth Citigroup, have begun compiling a list of festivities planned to mark the occasion. Highlights include a bevy of marches, teach-ins, and a “mass claims filing” wherein organizers are hoping hundreds of people will file simultaneous suits against the city of Seattle for gassing, spraying, beating, harassing, or just generally making them unhappy during the chaotic protests.

DEMOCRACY DOES NOT EXIST...

without free and fair elections, a vigorous free press, and engaged citizens to reclaim power from those who abuse it.

In this election year unlike any other—against a backdrop of a pandemic, an economic crisis, racial reckoning, and so much daily crazy—Mother Jones' journalism is driven by one simple question: Will America will move closer to, or further from, justice and equity in the years to come?

If you're able to, please join us in this mission with a donation today. Our reporting right now is focused on voting rights and election security, corruption, disinformation, racial and gender equity, and the climate crisis. We can’t do it without the support of readers like you, and we need to give it everything we've got between now and November. Thank you.
