  • Mood:
Speaking of Meditation Matters, they ran this poster today:

which reminds me that I never pay enough attention to Labour Day. There was even a union parade here, which if not exactly light entertainment sure would've been interesting to watch.

And I was looking through my quotes file in that previous post because I wanted to find another quote that would link me to a website that sells progressive posters, from which that poster probably originated -- but it turns out that the quote in question:

If you have come to help me, you are wasting your time. But if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together.

was from this T-shirt from the folks at Can't Afford 'Em Buttons, who make a lot more than buttons, and the poster company was the Northland Poster Collective (who did some research on the source of that quote).

So, yeah, all of those linked things above are Good and deserved a mention; and I need to get my head back into the world of social justice causes.
