Birmingham Indymedia Cinema presents a screening of "Trading Freedom: the secret life of the FTAA" and “Workers Without Bosses” on Tuesday 22 March 2005 at the Midlands Arts Centre, Birmingham. The films start at 8:30pm and will be accompanied by a Q & A session with a collective member of the film making team of Trading Freedom and also the launch of a local G8 dissent group. The discussion that follows will help contextualise the phenomenon of mass mobilizations in relation to the G8 protests in Gleneagles in July.

7 years after the Birmingham G7 summit and 3 months before the G8 arrives in Scotland, Big Mobilization: Quebec presents the film "Trading Freedom: the secret life of the FTAA". It's a snapshot of the wildly successful 2001 mobilization against the Free Trade Area of Americas, a proposed economic zone to regulate the activity of one-sixth of humanity, overriding local democracy in favour of "rights" for multinational corporations.

"Footage from Chiapas, Quebec City, Sao Paulo, Akwesasne and Tijuana, plus the combined efforts of over 100 videographers, photographers, free radio outlaws, writers, editors, techs, and rabble-rousers make this the perfect evening out." - Luther Blisset
