NGOs Don’t Change Shit

Making backroom deals with corporations to not cut down a small portion of a forest is not a win for the environment.

Voting in a president who restricts abortion access and lets right wingers take away public funding for abortion is not a win for women’s reproductive rights.

Raising a bunch of money for a FOR PROFIT clinic is not a win for medical access.

Turning an eye to Japanese Whaling companies continual raping of the sea is not a win for whales.

Selling chocolate for massive amounts of money to pay your organization’s president a 6 figure salary is not a win for anyone’s rights.

Exploiting the dedication and idealism of activists at the expense of their rights to health care, affordable wages and worker’s rights is not a win for the cause.

What was the cause again?
