People we hold for immoral controlling financial assets is in no way a new thing in our lives.
Who was it again that bought Manchester United or Liverpool or something? I think the price was something like 3 Billions and I'm wondering if it wasn't one of those sheiks down in Arabia (not voted in sheiks).
The only thing you can comfort yourself with is the possibility of another Arab Spring next year or that your (and all the rest our governments) choose to take a stance on immoral regimes getting their hands on things of value to us.
One way to act is to do what I have decided to do and that is change my phone provider from Vodaphone who are associated with McLaren. Obviously I have to do more than that. They, at least, have to be aware of why I am doing it.. I would also urge others to do likewise - and also tell them why they are doing it.
It might seem like a small thing to do, but were others to act as we may, responsibly then maybe enough people would be enough to have an effect.
One thing I can't do is nothing at all.
Do you know any Ethical Phone providers???
I've had quite dismissive comments on other Forums. "Its only a race", "I'm sure they will miss your custom". "ethical phone provider: does not compute".
It's only a race? I've been offered a job in a Kylon-B factory, its not for me to say what they do with it - its only a job!
Surely political change can only happen by the collective actions of the many?
Why have people so easily thrown away the only means to improve the political future - by dismissing themselves?
