    then I thought I was fighting to save the Amazon rainforest.
    Now I realise I am fighting for humanity.”

    @2 hippy
    you must be do you manage to read “extreme right” into the murder of all these journalists ?
    It proves you understand f*ck all about what you read.
    But are you going to tell us, or are you going to slink back into your insignificance and keep quiet , as always ??
