"We must take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.” - Elie Weisel

“If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor." - Desmond Tutu

"There comes a time when neutrality and laying low become dishonorable. If you’re not in revolt, you’re in cahoots. When this period and your name are mentioned, decades hence, your grandkids will look away in shame." - David Brooks

    This is really important. Larry Cohen was a great next time we need to get Ibew involved. Particularly touching was Rosa story about the effects of Noctor on Mexico, NAFTA is an important thing driving much of the immigration and no one talks about it. Worth watching the other speakers two very strong presentations. Lauren Niedel president of the our revolution or a chapter did a great job too. If you want to join our revolution just go to and type in Rhode Island.
