"We must take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the oppressed. Sometimes we must interfere. . . There is so much injustice and suffering crying out for our attention . . . writers and poets, prisoners in so many lands governed by the left and by the right." Elie Wiesel, Nobel Peace Prize Speech, 1986, Oslo.

Quote from myself--
Truth is the same, whoever is called to witness it, just by turning his or her eyes towards what is happening, and not away.
— Burmese poet Kyi May Kaung
