The need for activism

I believe documentaries are the best way to communicate an idea to the public. It is easier to sit and watch a film than to read the newspaper. People need an easy access, and I believe a small group of committed individuals can change things, we do need to improve this horrible world. We have a mission, we must not take the world for granted. There are so many things that are wrong, so much injustice, that we must do something, not stay impassively towards it.

“If everyone demanded peace instead of another television set, then there’d be peace.”
John Lennon

We are the change. We are the small community that can change the world, we are the conscience to the world. The eyes of those who are unable to see. The ears of those who don’t want to listen. The camera in front of the atrocity that the government wants to cover up.

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
Margaret Mead

This is your chance, our chance. We need to stand together and fight against injustice. Enough of ignorance in this world, let’s fight against that as well: Knowledge is power. Education is awareness. We are creating The Tribe: A group of activists focused on investigative journalism. The world needs us, and we can’t let it down.

“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot,
Nothing is going to get better. It’s not.”
Dr. Seuss, The Lorax

We can’t let those animals suffer, for they don’t have a voice and we must be theirs. We can’t let the homeless down, and we cannot let people say “they are there begging because they’re lazy, they could find a job”. We can blame it on the individuals, but it’s the corporation’s responsibility, it’s the government’s fault. It’s the bad management of those who are in the power. It is the selfishness, the money obsession and the greed for power.

“There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest.”
Elie Wiesel

We, citizens, need to stop them, to create awareness. The tribe is coming to do it, will you join us?
