One thought on “Supporters rally for Chelsea outside Ft. Leavenworth military prison

  1. Chelsea Manning is an American hero who did a great service for fellow citizens at great personal risk by exposing heinous war crimes (that still go on). She has endured torture and unjust incarceration that still goes on, and she deserves clemency and freedom.
