In 1981 I was told by a physicist who had contributed to the invention of Trident, that 1.7% of humanity are responsible for the arms race:
- banks and central banks
- arms producers
- the military
Then (before the internet was born) I had the vision of a ‘peace network’ of people and computers protecting our planet. Wanting to concentrate on positive aspects, I tried to focus on the 98.3%.
Occupy has pointed out that we are 99%.
Blog Action Day has been happening since 2007; first focussing on Environment, 2008 on Poverty, 2009 on Climate Change, 2010 on Water and 2011 on Food.
