To me democracy means a movement of the people, that will affect change, for the betterment of all. But more often then not, when the people do rise, even in civil , non violent movements, that the forces of the government sweep down and use force.

They are many incidents across the globe where this happens, even in our own country it has happened where the government calls in the police to use brute force in trying to deny the people's voices to be heard.

We need to look at ourselves, how can we say we are democratic when you read some of the stories out there about the practices of some Canadian companies operating on a global scale?

Should profits always trump human rights? I do not think so, so why does it happen? Has man learned anything, given all the wars, strive and destruction we have done?
