For photographers to use images to unsettle and enlighten.
For singer-songwriters to sing the songs that challenge the status quo.
For thinkers and poets to question authority.
For the media to be independent and investigative not swayed by biased political or commercial agenda.
For people to stand up for all those who need a voice to be heard.
For all of us to tell the world that everything is NOT ok in this country.
We can, we should and we will do something about it.
