Campaign for the freedom of Bradley Manning

US soldier Bradley Manning is allegedly the whistleblower who unveiled
a large number of secret or confidential documents that evidenced troops' total disregard for the lives of civilians, and the apparent support of Taliban guerrillas by Pakistan.

He has been compared to Daniel Ellsberg, who unveiled the so-called Pentagon Papers in the 1970s.

Antimilitarist organizations Courage to Resist, Codepink and Veterans for Peace are launching a campaign in support of this brave and bold soldier who dared to challenge authority and unveil some of the ill-guarded secrets of the imperial oligarchy.

There was already a first demonstration at Washington D.C. this past Sunday (photo above) and tomorrow there will be another one at Oklahoma City.

On August 4th, another, rather massive, demonstration was held at Quantico Base, Virginia, where the soldier is being held prisoner (photo above).
