S11 World Economic Forum Protests

Monday, 11 September 2000 - 8:00am to Wednesday, 13 September 2000 - 8:00am
Mural

From 11-13 September 2000 members of the World Economic Forum (WEF) met at the Crown Casino Complex in Melbourne. 3CR covered the massive public opposition to the WEF and corporate-led globalisation, and compiled highlights of the broadcasts on a CD - Globalisation Unplugged.

3CR would like to thank all those people who contributed material to this compilation and all those who added their voice to the protest.

Globalisation Unplugged was the winner of a 2001 ATOM Award
