  1. “There can be no keener revelation of a society’s soul than the way in which it treats its children.”
    — Nelson Mandela

  2. “They want us to be afraid.
    They want us to be afraid of leaving our homes.
    They want us to barricade our doors
    and hide our children.

    Their aim is to make us fear life itself!
    They want us to hate.
    They want us to hate ‘the other’.
    They want us to practice aggression
    and perfect antagonism.

    Their aim is to divide us all!
    They want us to be inhuman.
    They want us to throw out our kindness.
    They want us to bury our love
    and burn our hope.

    Their aim is to take all our light!
    They think their bricked walls
    will separate us.
    They think their damned bombs
    will defeat us.

    They are so ignorant they don’t understand
    that my soul and your soul are old friends.

    They are so ignorant they don’t understand
    that when they cut you I bleed.

    They are so ignorant they don’t understand
    that we will never be afraid,
    we will never hate.

    And we will never be silent
    for life is ours!”
    ― Kamand Kojouri

  3. “Our strategy should be not only to confront empire, but to lay siege to it. To deprive it of oxygen. To shame it. To mock it. With our art, our music, our literature, our stubbornness, our joy, our brilliance, our sheer relentlessness – and our ability to tell our own stories. Stories that are different from the ones we’re being brainwashed to believe.

    The corporate revolution will collapse if we refuse to buy what they are selling – their ideas, their version of history, their wars, their weapons, their notion of inevitability.

    Remember this: We be many and they be few. They need us more than we need them.

    Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.” ~ Arundhati Roy, War Talk

  4. “Once youv’e seen something, you can’t unsee it.”

    “And once you’ve seen it, keeping quiet, saying nothing, becomes as political an act as speaking out. There’s no innocence.”

    ” Either way, you’re accountable.” ~ Arundhati Roy

  5. “There’s really no such thing as the ‘voiceless’

    There are only the deliberately silenced, or the preferably unheard.”

    ~ Arundhati Roy

  6. “We need to move beyond Darwinian Theory, which stresses the importance of individuals, to one that stresses the importance of the community.”

    ~ Dr. Bruce Lipton

  7. “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world.

    Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”

    ~ Margaret Mead

  8. “I’m for truth, no matter who tells it.”

    “I’m for justice, no matter who it’s for or against.”

    “You can’t separate peace from freedom because no one can be at peace unless he has freedom.”

    ~ Malcolm X

  9. “If you’re not careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed, and loving the people who are doing the oppressing.”

    ~ Malcolm X

  10. “Removing the barriers at Portage and Main and opening the intersection to pedestrian foot traffic will create new economic opportunity and foot traffic and make our iconic intersection a welcoming and accessible place for us and our
    children.”

    children.

  11. R2W is the world
