We watched "No Mans Land" the other night. A great and intense flick. There is this bit where a frustrated UN field worker is getting mad with the UN's inaction on the issue and he says
"Neutrality doesn't exist in the face of murder. Doing nothing is taking sides"
I think the word"murder" in that quote could easily be replaced with injustice/corruption/wrong legislation/bad politics/mistreatment of people. Often I think we keep our mouths shut for the sake of peace and ease and it is a bad and terrible phenomenom. Arundhati Roy (Indian acitivist and Author) puts it in a nutshell when he says
"To stay quiet is as political an act as speaking out".
It is a true thing.
