I'll be taking an 'unpaid leave of absence' from my job at the Global Network from December 15-March 15, 2020 in order to help my friend Lisa Savage on her campaign for the US Senate in Maine. She's running as a Maine Green Independent Party member and needs to gather 2,000 petition signatures of registered Greens during that period. I'll be back to GN after March 15.

The Back Story on the MLK Assassination


Talk by William Pepper author of "An Act of State: The Execution of Martin Luther King" and "Orders to Kill: The Truth Behind the Murder of Martin Luther King" given February 27, 2003 in Seattle.

I read the second book noted above (Orders to Kill) years ago and it shook my world from an already very shaky foundation (after having read The Pentagon Papers during the Vietnam War).  William Pepper knows what he is talking about having represented the King family in a civil lawsuit where the jury declared that the US government was complicit in the MLK assassination.

At around 51:00 in the video Pepper discloses who from the US government did the shooting of MLK.
