U.S. Ambassador confronted at St. Paul's Cathedral with "Free Bradley Manning"

category international | anti-war / imperialism | news report author Friday November 25, 2011 11:55author by Report Report this post to the editors

A beefed up City of London police presence and deployed armed police greeted approx 15 activists demanding the freedom of Bradley Manning on the steps of St. Paul's Cathedral in London on "U.S. Thanksgiving Day" The U.S. Ambassador was attending the annual Thanbksgiving service at the cathedral along with a sizeable number of U.S. ex-pats. Those demanding the freedom of Bradley Manning also included U.S. ex-pats living in London.

Bradley Manning, who went through Shannon Airport to Iraq, has been imprisoned for the last 18 months in Baghdad, Kuwait, Quantico and Levenworth.  For the ten months he was kept in Quantico he was systematically physically and psychologically tortured in the hope he would break and implicate Julian Assange for the U.S. Grand Jury sitting on WikiLeaks.  Bradley refused to be broken and an escalated solidarity campaign including nonviolent civil disobedience contributed to his move to Leavenworth, the end of the systematic torture and improved prison conditions.

Bradley has been charged with 23 offences in relation to the release of video footage of a U.S. war crime in Baghdad http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5rXPrfnU3G0 and U.S. embassy cables. Julian Assange remains detained without charge in Britain facing extradtion to Sweden (his next High Court date Dec 5th.) and eventual rendition to the U.S.

Bradley's military trubunal befgins at Ft. Meade. Marland, U.S.A. on Dec 16th.  There are calls for international solidarity action to accompany a large demonstration ooutside of Ft. Meade on on Bradley's 24th. birthday Saturday Dec 17th.

Former U.S. political prisoner Ciaron O'Reilly stated from the steps of St. Paul's, "Bradley Manning and Julian Assange look like spending the rest of their lives in U.S. gulags for telling us about the true nature of these wars we are waging on Iraq and Afghanistan.  Those of us who marched and acted against these wars need to be in proactive solidarity for both Bradley and Julian right now.  This period is critical. From my own experience the more solidarity the resister gets the easier it is to sustain the anti-war resistance. We need to end these wars and free those who exposed and resisted them.  They're in the docks for us, we're on the streets for them!"

"A Malaysian tribunal has just found former US President George W Bush and former British Prime Minister Tony Blair guilty of committing crimes against humanity during the Iraq war, Press TV reported."

The information at the above www address includes a brief video interview with Dr Francis A. Boyle (United States Constitutional and International Lawyer): who appears very determined to carry on with his efforts to have the "criminals Bush and Blair" put in jail.
