Photo report: Manning's Family in Dublin

A brief report and some photos

We've been in Dublin since Wednesday with Welsh members of Chelsea Manning's family
http://manningfamilyfund.org/2013/11/27/rocky-road-to-d...blin/
enjoying warm and enthusiastic Irish hospitality from AFRI and many others during three days of solidarity events, meetings, meals and media interviews.

There are Irish connections on both sides of Chelsea's family: maternal grandfather from Rathmines, Dublin and one set of paternal great grandparents (both Mannings) from a village in Cork. Chelsea was flown out to Iraq via Shannon airport, the use of which by the US military compromises Ireland's supposed neutrality.

There will be more to report back later, but for now here are a few photos from the visit. More photos and info here:
