We are a thirsty people! Fortunately Nestlé, one of the world’s most profitable corporations, lovingly offers us its wholesome waters. Pumped straight from drought-ridden California, their thirst-quenching bottles of water are crisp and clear…with a refreshing aftertaste of bribery and deforestation.
“The wall has always been the best place to publish your work….The people who truly deface our neighbourhoods are the companies that scrawl their giant slogans across buildings and buses trying to make us feel inadequate unless we buy their stuff. They expect to be able to shout their message in your face from every available surface but you’re never allowed to answer back. Well, they started this fight and the wall is the weapon of choice to hit them back.”
(Banksy, British graffiti artist)

In the wake of a police shooing, protests, civil unrest, and the prospect of a race war, the city of Ferguson, Missouri, sought out a public relations firm to help it with its tarnished image.
A glance at the “team” it selected shows they know exactly what it takes to fix the problem!
“Darfur is nothing compared to what’s going on in the Congo,” says Schuler Deschryver, who despite constant death threats, continues to raise the plight of Congolese women. “My father was the founder of the National Park in Rwanda, which is home to rare silver back gorillas. During the war here, just one silver back was killed. And when it happened, within 48 hours millions in funding was sent to ensure the rest of the gorilla population was protected. Why isn’t the same done with our women? I’ll tell you why, because in the eyes of the international community animals have more value than humans in this part of the world.”
