Truth & Lies - Why Dale Farm MattersKen O'Keefe Salem-News.com
Those of us who care about justice should care about the nearly 90 families facing eviction at Dale Farm, this documentary intends to prove why that is the case.
(CRAYS HILL, Essex UK) - In an article last week, I explained how Dale Farm’s residents are Irish Travelers, many identify them as Gypsies; some are people who do not fit neatly into the brainwashed consumer culture. To the contrary they are a sort of people that are impossible to tame. This trait and their Irish roots attracts me to them.
I love free spirits, I am myself a free spirit, so I relate to anyone who would rather die with self-respect and honour rather than capitulate to the tyrants and their minions and live a domesticated, capitalistic, consumer life.
That is a lie, and the truth will be set out in the full documentary set to be released on October 1, 2011.
I agree with Martin Luther King Jr. who all too rightly said: "Injustice anywhere, is a threat to justice everywhere."
Those of us who care about justice should care about the nearly 90 families facing eviction at Dale Farm, this documentary intends to prove why that is the case. TJP - Ken O'Keefe
