Call Out: Take Action for Bradley Manning

WISE Up for Bradley Manning | 09.04.2012 09:38 | Anti-militarism | Repression

Accused whistleblower Bradley Manning has been held for almost two years without trial in the US accused of whistleblowing acts that have exposed the ugly truth about US activities around the world and its wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Bradley has been tortured and denied his rights. If found guilty as charged he could face the death penalty. Join us in Wales between 12 and 29 April for 18 days of solidarity events and actions or take action wherever you are. Free Bradley Manning!

"Manning is the world's pre-eminent prisoner of conscience." John Pilger.

Bradley Manning supporters from Wales and beyond will be organising in Pembrokeshire, Cardiff and north east Wales during April. Bradley, who has Welsh roots, will be back in court at Fort Meade in the US this month (24th - 26th) where proceedings against him will continue.

We're calling for all charges against Bradley Manning to be dropped and for him to be freed immediately. A fair trial is impossible and in any case blowing the whistle on war crimes is not a crime. For whistleblowers in the US, as here, the rhetoric is protection, the reality persecution.

Join us at one of the planned events or get in touch by email. Help us make some noise on the streets for Bradley Manning. We'll be in Pembrokeshire 12-14 April, Cardiff 15-24 April and north east Wales 25-29 April. Plenty of opportunities for street speaking, stalls, banner hangs, busking etc.

What's already planned?
