Masked protestor Frank (last name not given) shows a line of police on December 1, 1999 where he was hit in the leg with non-lethal beanbags shot by Seattle police on November 30 during riots near the World Trade Organization (WTO) conference in Seattle.   The Space Needle is in the background.  Protestors overwhelmed law enforcement staffing the conference and violent clashes between police and protestors led to widespread damage throughout the downtown Seattle business district.  Photography by Anthony Bolante © The Image Arsenal
