Our challenge: Stand with Bradley until the trial is over
December 2, 2011. From the Bradley Manning Support Network
Bradley Manning has spent over a year and a half in prison without a trial. Half of that time in torturous solitary confinement. He stands accused of showing the world the truth about America’s imperialistic role overseas – from American soldiers gunning down Reuters journalists to previously-unknown scores of civilians killed in the Iraq War.
In a democracy, the public has a right and a need to know about its government. Bradley stands accused of telling us the truth about our government – and now he faces life in prison, or even the death penalty.
Our grassroots-driven organization is taking on some of the world’s most powerful and embarrassed government officials. We face tough odds, but we have truth on our side. And, just as important, we have the support of people like you.
Will you stand with Bradley Manning? Commit to making a monthly donation from now till the end of the trial.
The United States government wants to draw this process out for as long as possible, hoping that they can sweep Bradley under the rug or lock him away. But we’re planning on ensuring that Brad’s story is told, that he has every defense possible.
We’re looking for 100 people in the world who can commit to donating $100 or more per month for the duration of the trial. But even if you aren’t able to give a full $100, you can still help support our organization by setting up a regular monthly donation. This will give us the financial stability to create an aggressive defense for Brad, providing him with top-notch legal representation, ensuring he has expert witnesses he needs, informing the public about his case, and speaking out against attempts to bar journalists and the public from his trial.
Your monthly donation will create the foundation our organization needs to keep up our work during Bradley’s trial. By spreading your donation our over the course of a year, you can make a big difference through smaller payments – and give our organization the financial insurance to be most effective.
Help us give Bradley a fighting chance in the upcoming proceedings, inside and out of the military courtroom at Fort Meade, Maryland.
