They Say

About Nuclear Power:

- “Governments should agree (…) to toss their nuclear arms into the dustbin of history, along with those other monstrous evils of our time – slavery and apartheid.” Desmond Tut, The Guardian

About Financial Reform:

- “In the end (…), there was no room for a Financial Consumers Association in the 1,500 pages” of the final reform bill approved last week.” Ralph Nader, Common Dreams

About Arizona Immigration Law:

About the Wallet PC:

- “You’ll be able to carry the wallet PC in your pocket or purse. It will display messages and schedules and also let you read or send electronic mail and faxes, monitor weather and stock reports, play both simple and sophisticated games, browse information if you’re bored, or choose from among thousands of easy-to-call up photos of your kids.” Bill Gates (1995), The Atlantic

About Darfur’s al-Bashir:

- “The American people should urge the Obama administration to lead a diplomatic offensive to convince the world to isolate (President of Sudan) Omar al Bashir as a fugitive from justice, and to whole-heartedly support the only body offering Darfur’s people a measure of authentic justice: the International Criminal Court.” Mia Farrow, Huffington Post

About Business as Usual:

“During the bubble everybody was benefiting and losing a sense of reality. Now, since there’s the beginning of economic recovery – however bumpy that might be – in some sense people are already starting to forget what happened two years ago. Banks are going back to business as usual and bonuses are back to levels that are outrageous by any standards.” Nouriel Roubini, The Telegraph
