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.
