Be the change you want to see in the world.

Nelson Mandela:
If not us, then who?
If not now, then when?

Barack Obama:
Yes we can.

David Attenborough:
Now is the time to act.

William Wilberforce
Having heard all of this you may choose to look the other way but you can never again say you did not know.

Live simply so that others may simply live.

George Bernard Shaw:
The reasonable man adapts himself to the world;
the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself.
Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.

Climate camp, Heathrow, 2007:
Resistance is fertile.

Monty Don, Broadcaster and Chairman of the Soil Association:
My attitude to politicians is that they are a pretty useless bunch ... You have to become a rabble. One should scare them and pressure them, and subvert the system from the ground up.
