"Video equipment does not create dynamism where none is latent; it does not create action or ideas; these depend on the people who use it. Used responsively and creatively, it can accelerate perception and understanding, and therefore accelerate action. The Comité des Citoyens de Saint-Jacques could have accomplished any of their actions without the video equipment. We could not say that at any time it made the difference between success and failure. But it made good things better, and helped people to grow. It is a useful tool."
