Before I post tour diary vol. II…

February 4th, 2005 | No Comments | Categories: Uncategorized |

OK, I’m home, the trip was great, and I’ll post more about that tomorrow when my brain isn’t fried on jetlag. For now, though, here’s a quote from Nelson Mandela’s speech at the rally for the Make Poverty History campaign today in Trafalgar Square,

“Overcoming poverty is not a gesture of charity. It is an act of justice. It is the protection of a fundamental human right; the right to dignity and a decent life. While poverty persists, there is no true freedom.”

that first sentence again, in case you missed it –

“Overcoming poverty is not a gesture of charity. It is an act of justice.”

that’s one that needs to go on t-shirts, posters – anywhere until it’s tatoo’d on the hearts and minds of everyone.
