"...I think in many ways the seeds of self-destruction have been planted in our movement from the beginning: the trashing, the jealousies, the rivalries, the personal attacks, the fear and tearing down of leaders. We have got to stop that. We have got to find the love for each other and the courage to create a new AIDS activist movement that is stronger and saner and more relentless and that has a strategy and a vision and a plan..."
(the late great Dave Johnson)
"There are enough of them out there that hate us. Why divide ourselves? Everybody infected and affected should be working together in unity as one community."
(Suzanne Rodkin, activist living with AIDS)
