Whistle-blowers are heroes, and deserve our support. Act now before it's too late!
A Bradley Manning supporter is someone who believes in exposing war
crimes, in international justice, in people's right to know what the
government does in their name. (See what WikiLeaks
Bradley Manning supporters come from all over the United States and the
world. They come from small towns, big cities, and everything in-between. And
throughout the history of the world, it has taken people such as these to
hold the government and the military accountable.
The military's denial of Bradley Manning's rights to due process is thoroughly unAmerican.
Outrageously, Bradley was subjected to 11 months of solitary confinement, 1000 days of prison without trial, and is now effectively being denied the ability to make a whistle-blower defense during the guilt phase of his trial.
Thanks to protests organized by Bradley Manning's supporters, he was removed from solitary isolation at the Quantico marine brig in February of 2011.
Bradley Manning, as well as his attorney David Coombs, has thanked supporters for these efforts.
It's now up to us to organize ourselves again against military authorities who would sentence Bradley to life behind bars.
Don't forget Bradley Manning this Valentine's Day!
A little known fact about Valentine's Day is that it originated not as a romantic holiday, but as a way to honor a crusader for social equality. On this Valentine's day consider writing Bradley Manning a letter of support!
Protests are being organized for February 23rd. Bradley Manning has the right to a speedy trial!
Saint Valentine was imprisoned for performing weddings for soldiers who were forbidden to marry and for ministering to Christians, who were a persecuted minority under the Roman Empire.
As a gay man in the military, Bradley Manning is a persecuted minority in our time.
Yet, 22 year-old Bradley was big-hearted enough to look beyond his own self-interests.
Bradley said that he wanted people to know the truth, "because without information, you cannot make informed decisions as a public."
He hoped to promote "discussion, debates and reforms."
During a public presentation made in December, attorney David Coombs stated,
I hope that someday soon, Brad can go to college. I hope that someday soon, he can, in fact, go into public service.
But I am confident, as I stand here today, that Brad doesn’t have to worry about making a difference in this world– he has made a difference.
We think that Valentine's Day is a fitting time to send Bradley a message of thanks directly.
You can send cards and letters to the following address:
Bradley's attorney David Coombs has said, "the best evidence for me that I am not standing alone when I stand for Brad is a website called 'I Am Bradley Manning'. I personally have to tell you, I go to this site at least once a day. I go to this site when I need to recharge my batteries after working a long day on the case, and I just peruse the photographs – people with a simple statement in front of their face, “I am Bradley Manning.” The power of those simple words is amazing."
