Matthis Chiroux - Veterans For Peace 25th Annual Nat'l Convention
Matthis Chiroux is a former Military Journalist, or as he calls it, "propaganda artist" and was in charge of polishing turds into gold.
He refused to re-deploy citing the illegality of the war in Iraq under the UN Charter, and his sworn duty to uphold the constitution as his reasons. The military offered to allow him to quietly disappear and get his full benefits, but he decided to challenge the military and the war, in court.
He is one intense motherfucker, and I hope he doesn't burn himself out.
