United Kingdom — A group of activists dedicated to ending the relentless cycle of war have raised over $100,000 towards their goal in a month. The appeal from World Citizen Solutions to those who are sick and tired of their taxes being used to fund wars they vehemently disagree with, has resulted in a remarkable outpouring of financial support.


Bold claims made by the Indiegogo Campaign promise supporters that they “will be part of something game-changing.” Contributors are offered the chance to create real and lasting change and positively impact humanity, both now and in the future.

Taking our power back

World Citizen Solutions founder, Ken O’Keefe, said:

“Humanity’s challenge at this decisive point in history is to face a monster that is desperately attempting to expand its tyrannical system of human enslavement. Simultaneously human consciousness is growing with unparalleled expansion and this is a grave threat to the tyrants. Only one of these forces, humanity or tyranny, can succeed and the world we handover to our children and future generations will be defined by our success or failure in this regard. The irony is that the tyrants have no power but that which we have unwittingly relinquished to them… in order to create a better world we simply need to take our power back. That is my ultimate goal; a better world. My wisdom in this matter comes from the knowledge that the attainment of this goal is not up to me, it is up to us.”


Backed by over 1,000 people so far, the campaign promises its supporters a lawful way to extract themselves from tax obligations it claims make them accomplices to perpetual war and financiers of war crimes.

Sounds good, right?

Claiming to be 100% dedicated to ending the perpetual cycle of war, the mission is to usher in what World Citizen Solutions calls “a lasting era of justice and peace.” The team are developing legal and social strategic initiatives they claim will have profound effects on releasing humanity from its current paradigm.

“The tear under my eye expresses the sorrow I feel for all the insanity I see humanity involved in” – Ken O’Keefe

The project is the baby of ex-U.S. marine and confrontational anti-war activist Ken O’Keefe. The widely-respected author and lecturer formally renounced his U.S. citizenship in 2001 and now holds Irish, Hawaiian, and Palestinian citizenship. Founder of the Human Shield Action to Iraq, he also served as captain on the Free Gaza Mission in 2008. He survived Israel’s attack on the Mavi Marmara in 2010.

Also a boat captain, dive instructor, and social entrepreneur, O’Keefe’s efforts have rescued endangered turtles in Hawaii and other untold amounts of marine life. He successfully lobbied for the creation of the North Shore’s first Marine Sanctuary, and founded Deep Ecology — a dive operation in Hawaii that also focuses on education and environmental protection. A lawfully declared World Citizen,O’Keefe claims his ultimate allegiance is to his entire human family and to planet Earth.

O’Keefe said he has been inspired and motivated by support for the campaign and the sheer amount of people wanting to take back power and regain their humanity. Donations — the largest of which was $3,000, although the vast majority have been smaller — will go towards paying the“modest but realistic” salaries of a small team to do the essential work.

“Believe me, I have tried to do world-changing things on a volunteer basis and it just doesn’t work,” he said. “You can’t rely on it and unfortunately the powers that be will use infiltrators to get close to you through ‘volunteerism.’” Claiming he has “been there, done that,” O’Keefe is happy to be able pay a small team he can completely trust.

Although World Citizen Solutions hasn’t laid out exactly how it plans to achieve its goals — the mission has so far resonated deeply with over 1,200 backers — many are undoubtedly inspired by the integrity of O’Keefe, who clearly walks the walk. You can watch an update on the campaign here.

    If you want to stop wars then ban the institution of working. Soliders are employees for the military and stopping all work will including the bankers not getting paid. When all og social does this the bankers will get the message and feel yhe change needed. If anything we would imprison them or change our monetary system by replacing it with an honest one and change the way we work after this. People honestly believe they’re going to change something yet still go to work and feed the shadow government the power they steal from us everyday as if nobody can see that is the major problem. New job’s mean nothing if the bankers still own the monetary system in which those “Revolutionary” job’s are financed from. It’s a simple task it just takes mass cooperation and courage to stand up and be willing to lose everything(that isn’t even yours or your entirety).

    Impossible. Too much profit in war.

    Will never happen. Not one country and of territory will concede their power or wealth. For peace you have to get rid of what causes it (war). Money, wealth and the human race.
