[Freedom Burma] Freedom is never voluntarily given by the...

Sophia Sofia Chan posted in Freedom Burma
Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor, it must be demanded by the oppressed.  I swear never to be silent whenever and wherever human beings endure suffering and humiliation. We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.  If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse, but you say that you are neutral .....  If a young girl is being raped by a group of armed solders, but you say that you are neutral ......  If a society of human beings are being totally crushed by dictators, but you would still say that you are neutral .....  Then no one will appreciate your neutrality.  In fact, this kind of neutrality is just a mask for those who would indirectly help the oppressors and take the side of them.  So what we always believe is that ....  If you are neutral in a situation of injustice, you have chosen the side of oppressors.
