    We may not be the Animal Liberation Front in Okja, the recent satire on genetically modified food, or Erin Brockovich in the critically-acclaimed biographical film Erin Brockovich, but we, Raffles One Earth, would like to believe that as a small, close-knit family of your everyday Rafflesians, we can make a difference.
