"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

    Well, it will be interesting to see what the Narragansett Indian Tribe members who oppose the water agreement made by the current tribal leadership and Invenergy do between now and the next hearing. I assume they will be seeking some legal guidance. And then there’s the new Intervenor, the Town of Charlestown. This is more than a movie. It’s a Netflix series.
