A quotation commonly attributed to Archbishop Desmond Tutu (r.i.p.):

If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality.

I cannot locate an original source verifying the attribution, but it sounds like something he’d say, anyway.
