Blowing the whistle on a war crime is
not a crime
Army intel analyst Bradley Manning faces decades in prison for allegedly leaking a video of a U.S. helicopter attack that killed 11 civilians and wounded two children in Baghdad, Iraq. The Army covered up the evidence and declared the war crime "justified". Now they say that exposing the massacre is criminal.
Free Bradley Manning
The Bradley Manning Support Network, of which Veterans For Peace is part, is calling on groups and individuals to demand that the U.S. Army drop the charges against Private First Class Bradley Manning. Twenty-two year old Manning, held in solitary confinement since May, has been charged with releasing classified documents, including a video that shows American troops shooting and killing Iraqi civilians from an Apache helicopter.

Manning’s imprisonment has resulted in an international outcry, with people throughout the world demanding his release and calling for transparency in America’s war policies. Famed Pentagon Papers whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg has called Manning, “A new hero of mine.”
