Description

November 18 & 19th 2003: I had seen a lot of news coverage on the local police preparing and having public drills to prepare for the FTAA (Free Trade Agreement of the Americas) conference. The police had been preparing because of the chaotic protest that ensued in Seattle during the World Trade Organization meeting sometime back. The City of Miami police had also received $8.5 million from the Bush administration to assist in helping them fend off the protesters.
