What can a small group of thoughtful committed citizens do?

" Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world; indeed it's the only thing that ever has."

Anthropologist Margaret Mead quoted in the New York Times.

The above quote struck a cord with regards to the promotion of the THA's six demands.

However, while very true a "small group of thoughtful and committed citizens" will still need the support of the 'People' to help apply the maximum pressure possible on our politicians so that they have nowhere to hide and have to take heed of what we require them to do.

The beauty of THA is once in place the 'People' will have the permanent means and mechanisms to direct the government of the day and hold it to account.
