Jay Griffiths: Why We Rebel


“Each generation is given two things. One is the gift of the world and the other is the duty of keeping it safe for those to come. The generations of yesterday trust those of today to not take more than their share, and those of tomorrow trust their elders to care for it. The contract is broken and it is happening on our watch. A pathological obsession with money and profit is engineering the breakdown. The system is contemptuous of humanity and the living world and held in place by a toxic media… power without truth; by a toxic finance… power without compassion; and by toxic politics… power without principle. ” , Jay Griffiths reads from ‘Why We Rebel’ as the Red Brigade occupies the steps of the City of London Magistrates’ Court.
