We Must Not Remain Neutral in the Face of Injustice

If you are neutral in a situation of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has his foot on the tail of the mouse, and you say you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality. — Bishop Desmond Tutu [1]

This truth is why the ancient Hebrew prophets were also so quick to denounce injustice and why we must do likewise.
