2010 GIA CONFERENCE

Opening  the final plenary of the 2010 GIA conference

Buffy Sainte-Marie :
* The music business is about music, not business; artists are there to pull the cart, to be milked for money.
* They say nobody wants war, but that’s not true: war is about money-laundering, not that this religion doesn’t like that religion.
 * I’ve got more degrees and honorary degrees than you’ve had hot dinners. Colleges today are corporate vocational schools where corporations and the military go to recruit kids.
 * When one has a billion and a billion have none, something is wrong.
 * In North America, we have five major heavily funded colleges of war where a guy can go and spend his life getting advanced degrees in how to make war better. We don’t have one such college of that caliber and funding dedicated to alternative conflict resolution. How can a young person learn from Martin Luther King and Gandhi?
