You may be aware that Chelsea Manning is in jail again – this time for refusing to testify to a grand jury against Wikileaks.


 She said:

“I will not participate in a secret process that I morally object to, particularly one that has been historically used to entrap and persecute activists for protected political speech”.


 The state persecution of Chelsea Manning is a scandal. We urge you to sign the RootsAction petition  calling for her immediate release.  The petition is supported by the Pentagon Paper whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg


UPDATE: Outrageously, Chelsea has been held in solitary confinement since she was imprisoned 17 days ago. The Chelsea Manning Support Committee is calling for her immediate release from solitary. UN Rapporteur Juan Mendez has called more than 15 days in solitary confinement "cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment, and may even constitute torture."

You can donate to her legal fund here:

Chelsea Manning is back in jail, despite having been pardoned for the "crime" of informing the public about what the U.S. and other governments were up to.

Click here to sign a petition asking that Manning be freed, again!

This time, Manning is not accused of anything other than refusing to testify against the journalists to whom she blew the whistle.

Pentagon Papers whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg has this to say:

Chelsea Manning is again acting heroically in the name of press freedom, and it’s a travesty that she has been sent back to jail for refusing to testify to a grand jury.

An investigation into WikiLeaks for publishing is a grave threat to all journalists’ rights, and Chelsea is doing us all a service for fighting it.

She has already been tortured, spent years in jail, and has suffered more than enough. She should be released immediately.

—Daniel Ellsberg
