Free Bradley Manning Info in Berlin, Dec 2, 2012
Our Berlin anti-war friends, Americans and Germans, set up an information
booth last Sunday next to the Brandenburg Gate
to inform Berliners of the Bradley Manning case.
The booth included a tablet PC showing the (in)famous Apache gunship
assassinations in Baghdad as a continuous loop during the day. And they
video recorded the whole thing.
Hats off to their Vorsprung durch Technik!
U.S. Citizens for Peace & Justice, Nov. 30 2012
U.S. Citizens for Peace & Justice – Rome held a flash-mob photo-op Friday (Nov. 30) outside the U.S. Embassy in Rome, Italy, to say: “We are Bradley Manning! Exposing war crimes is a duty, not a crime!” It was a work day so there were just a handful of us. But all our members have endorsed the action because all are convinced that Bradley is a hero, not a criminal.
Convicting Bradley would send the wrong signal to everyone working in places of power, i.e. “Close an eye to any wrongdoing you see.”
Instead, freeing Bradley will send the signal: “We are all responsible for keeping our democracy free of corruption and wrongdoing, by denouncing any occurrences of these things — publicly if there are no official channels or if superiors refuse to listen (Bradley’s case).”
And THAT is the signal this trial should be sending.
