Ken O’Keefe swears that “humanity is rising at such a pace that it’s going to overcome the fact that your overlords own the media, they own the banks, they own the corporations, they own the court system, they own the police, they own every fucken aspect of human existence, but the don’t have enough power to overcome the truth. And the truth is you’ve been party to the biggest crime in humanity’s existence.”
He is a former US Marine who served in the first Gulf War but was discharged for speaking out about what he saw as abuses of power in the Military. Inspired by what he learned during his time in the military, Ken has gone on to become an ardent activist protesting the United States’ use of military agression around the world.
Prior to the second Iraq war, he organized and participated in a project called human shield action to Iraq. More recently, he participated in a flotilla that attempted to break the Embargo of the Gaza Strip, and was personally involved in the disarming of Israeli soldiers that boarded their ship.
