	"We have nothing to lose.  We are dying.  What more can they take from
you than your life?  They go after your spirit, they go after your 
dignity, they go after your ability to determine for yourself - and 
then they let you die in the streets."
   	"What you have to do is be willing to stand up and say, 
'First, you're gonna look me in the eye, you are gonna treat me like 
an equal, you are gonna treat me with respect - BECAUSE I DEMAND IT!' 
And if enough of us - from our little funky little street newspapers 
- from our taken-over airwaves with our independent
liberation radio station - and manipulating the media and learning 
from the way they ignore us - if we are saying the same thing then WE 
create the national dialog."
