Michael Prysner (born June 15, 1983) is an American political activist. He is the co-founder of March Forward!, an organization of active-duty members of the US military and veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars who encourages current active-duty service personnel to resist deployment.

Prysner is a US Army veteran who served in Iraq. His rank was corporal. According to Prysner, his duties in Iraq included ground surveillance, home raids and the interrogation of prisoners, and these experiences led him to take a radical anti-war stand.[1][2]

In 2008, Prysner ran a write-in campaign for the US House of Representatives for Florida's 22nd congressional district (Boca Raton).

He is a member of Party for Socialism and Liberation.[3] He is also a member of A.N.S.W.E.R..[4]

In November 2011, Prysner was arrested in Occupy Los Angeles.[5] He was released after posting bail.[6]

Prysner is also a producer and co-writer for the program The Empire Files, with Abby Martin.[7][8][9]

He performed the rap "Skit 6" on the album Soundtrack to the Struggle.[10]
