debuting our new book, About Face: Military Resisters Turn Against War at the Veterans for Peace conference in
Portland last month, we are ready to hit the road! Courage to Resist staff and
contributors to the book will be spending the next few months traveling around
the U.S. meeting with veterans groups, holding public events, and raising
awareness about military resistance.
About Face, now available directly from Courage to Resist for only $20 (free shipping).
For the upcoming September events, Bradley Manning Support Network organizer Emma Cape (photo below right) will be speaking about the case of alleged WikiLeaks
whistle-blower PFC Bradley Manning, who has been imprisoned for over a year
without trial. Key points of the presentation include: 1) the content of
the leaked documents, which have been mentioned in over a third of all New York
Times editions of the past year, 2) the WikiLeaker's motivations, as revealed in
chat logs attributed to Bradley Manning by the FBI, 3) development of the case,
including the UN's attempt to investigate alleged torture of PFC Manning in
Quantico, VA and 4) the growing international campaign to support Bradley
Manning, who many view as the greatest war crime whistle-blower since Daniel
Ellsberg released the Pentagon Papers.
