"Part of the Clamshell’s" legacy was our successful combining of confrontation, creativity and nonviolence. You don’t see those three elements together very often. But they were evident in the anti-World Trade Organization (WTO) demonstration in Seattle in 1999, where hundreds of people were trained in nonviolent direct action, organized into affinity groups and given a handbook that was a direct descendent of the Clamshell’s. This is a great legacy."— Arnie Alpert, NH program coordinator, American Friends Service Committee (former Clam staff person and member of Cukes affinity group on the site, 1977, and the Walrus and Carpenter affinity group in the Concord, NH, National Guard Armory)
