Irish supporters take the Manning Truthfest to Haverfordwest (and Fishguard)

category international | rights, freedoms and repression | event notice author Sunday January 05, 2014 10:56author by WISE Upauthor email wiseupforbm at yahoo dot com Report this post to the editors

Join Chelsea (Bradley) Manning's Irish supporters along with her family and friends in west Wales for two days of events celebrating Truth. All proceeds will go to the Private Manning Family Fund, raising money to support family members in Wales with the cost of prison visits to Chelsea in Kansas.

As Chelsea’s American grandmother said "If you can’t tell the truth, then don’t bother speaking!"
Chelsea told the truth and has paid with her liberty.
