Truth Bellows

Cartoon for the New Internationalist, March 2007,
illustrating an article about Waldon Bello, a leading critic
of the WTO / IMF / World Bank, and an inspiring activist.
   


Dismantle Globally - Rebuild Locally

Cartoon inspired by the fascinating writings and speeches of Derrick Jensen,
2007.  The phrase shown here is his new version of the classic environmental
 'slogan' - "think global, act local".   The big red "fire-cracker" is a somewhat
uncomfortable symbol of 'urgent action' - but many, including Derrick, suggest
that its quite normal and justified to feel the need to 'do more than march' when
you see the scale of the corporate-led threat to our planet and its ecosystems.

"The headlines giveth, and the small print taketh away."
  
- Tom Waits, from 'Step right up' 1976.

“I live in the Managerial Age, in a world of ‘Admin’.

The greatest evil is not now done in those sordid ‘dens of crime’ that Dickens loved to paint. It is not even done in concentration camps and labour camps. in those we see its final result. But it is conceived and ordered (moved, seconded, carried and minuted) in clean, carpeted,
warmed and well-lighted offices, by quiet men with white collars
and cut fingernails and smooth-shaven cheeks who do
not need to raise their voices.”
- C.S. Lewis

"If you don't read the newspaper, you are uninformed;
if you do read the newspaper, you are misinformed."
 - Mark Twain

"Can I tell you the truth? I mean, this isn't the TV news, is it?
Here's what
I think the truth is: We are all addicts of fossil fuels in
a state of denial. And like so many addicts about to face cold turkey,
our leaders are now committing violent crimes to get what little is
left of what we're hooked on." 
- Kurt Vonnegut

"The Economy is a wholey owned subsidiary of the Ecology." - Paul Ehrlich
"Failure of Monsanto's GM seeds have led to 25,000 farmers in India commiting suicide.  The most common method chosen, is to drink the herbicides that didn't work on their crops."  - Vandana Shiva  (RFSTE)

"The corporate revolution will collapse if we refuse to buy
what they are selling
- their ideas, their version of history, their wars,
their weapons, their notion of inevitability.  Remember this:  We be many and they be few.  They need us more than we need them.  Another world is not only possible, she is on her way.  On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing."
 - Arundhati Roy, Brazil. Jan 27, 2003.

"There can be no real peace when living with someone who has already declared war, no peace but capitulation. And even that, as we see around us, doesn’t lead to further peace but to further degradation and exploitation. We’re responsible for not only what we do but for what is in our power to stop. Before we can speak of peace, we have to speak honestly of stopping, by any and all means possible, those who have declared war on the world and on us. Those who destroy wont stop because we ask nicely. There is only one language that they understand, and everyone here knows what it is. Yet we don’t speak of it openly." - Derrick Jensen

"Let us leave pessimism for better times." - Graffiti in Bogota, Colombia.
