The Bradley Manning Support Network (BMSN) has called for an International Day of Action in support of Bradley Manning, the 24-year-old gay US soldier, charged with blowing the whistle on US war crimes by giving thousands of documents to Wikileaks, including the infamous “Collateral Murder” video.
Imprisoned in May 2010, Bradley was for months kept in solitary confinement plus additional torture. On 23rd February he will have been detained for 1,000 days without trial. The military prosecutor is seeking a life sentence for his having got the truth out to us.
|Julian Assange, Wikileaks chief, who is accused & attacked but has never been charged, has taken refuge in the Ecuadorian embassy in London, protected from extradition to Sweden and to the US, where he would be treated like Bradley.|
No pride in the slaughter of others!
Bradley Manning is part of the tradition of openly gay men who refuse to kill, torture and rape as part of the armies of the world.
