Bradley Manning Shipped through Shannon back in Court; We're Back on the Streets!
anti-war / imperialism |
Monday April 23, 2012 18:34 by Ciaron - Giuseppe Conlon House, London
****If you can't make it to the tribunal at Ft. Meade or the U.S. embassy in London, consider making a public stand for Bradley Manning on April 24th., 25th. or 26th. wherever you are - as he stands before a military tribunal that wishes to bury him alive!
Bradley has now been in military custody for over 700 days!
There are solidarity actions presently planned in Cardiff/ Wales, Fairford Base/ England, the gates of Ft. Meade /USA and 14 cities world wide
Here in London, renowned human rights activist Peter Tatchell http://petertatchell.net/ will speak at a solidarity vigil for Bradley Manning at the U.S. Embassy on Tuesday April 24th. 5pm
Bradley Manning a 24 year old U.S. Army intelligence analyst, faces life in prison or the death penalty for allegedly sharing a video of U.S. war crime in Iraq with the WikiLeaks website. http://www.collateralmurder.com/ Manning has also been charged with blowing the whistle on the "Iraq War Logs", the Afghan Diaries", "Guantanamo Files", and embarassing U.S. State Department cables.
Peter Tatchell stated,
"If Bradley blew the whistle on war crimes, he deserves a medal - not a jail sentence. All the charges against him should be dropped. The people who should be prosecuted are the US military personnel who committed the crimes, not the man who allegedly exposed their criminal actions."
Free Bradley Manning!
