That is our job: to be bold. Not to tinker about at the margins,
'greening' corporations , waffling about 'sustainability', proposing
voluntary targets, issuing policy papers, settling for
better-than-nothing, politely gathering the crumbs from the table.
Our job, now, is to call for everything we want, as loudly as we can,
and to keep calling until we get it.
Who knows, we might even surprise ourselves.
We will certainly surprise the world.
And if not us, then who? If not now, then when?
Paul Kingsnorth, "One No, Many Yeses, A Journey To The Heart
Of The Global Resistance Movement", Free Press, 2003
