Quote of the Week - July 13

"How we organize reflects our goal." - Walden Bello.

"Later for the talk we need action,
Silence is golden but the violence is platinum." - Talib Kweli.

"As Jose Marti would say: 'a people that cannot produce its own food are slaves; they don't have the slightest freedom. If a society doesn't produce what it eats, it will always be dependent on someone else'.... We want an agrarian practice that transforms farmers into guardians of the land, and a different way of farming, that ensures an ecological equilibrium and also guarantees that land is not seen as private property." - Joao Pedro Stedile (Via Campesina regional co-ordinator for South America)
