Pardon Bradley Manning campaign launched – sign the petition and show your support!
By the Bradley Manning Support Network. August 21, 2013.
Take action for Bradley Manning, the heroic soldier and 3 time Nobel Peace Prize nominee who has been sentenced to 35 years in prison for blowing the whistle on war crimes and government corruption.
Starkly showcasing the US government officials’ misplaced priorities when it comes to human rights, whistleblower and Nobel Peace Prize nominee Bradley Manning was sentenced to 35 years in prison. The information that Bradley gave to the public exposed the unjust detainment of innocent people at Guantanamo Bay, the true human cost of our wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and forever changed investigative journalism. There is no evidence that anyone was harmed as a result of the information exposed.
Join Amnesty International and the Bradley Manning Support Network in signing a petition to President Obama, demanding that Bradley Manning be given clemency and be released immediately. After having been tortured and abused at Quantico prison for 9 months where he was held in solitary confinement against the recommendations of every health professional who assessed him, and after having already spent more than 1190 days in prison (more than 3 years confinement before the trial even began), Bradley Manning should be set free! Uphold your promise Obama: protect whistleblowers!
Like Bradley Manning, we believe a healthy democracy requires public information. What price will future whistleblowers pay? It is time for President Obama to pardon Bradley, and to focus on preventing human rights violations instead of punishing much needed whistleblowers.
