Synopses & Reviews
In March 1987 a radical coalition of queer activists converged on Wall Street--their target, 'Business, Big Business, Business as Usuall!!' It was ACT UP's first demonstration. In November 1999 a radical coalition of environmental, labor, anarchist, queer, and human rights activists converged in Seattle--their target was similar, a system of global capitalism. This anthology offers a history of ACT UP for a new generation of activists and students.
