Chelsea Manning will be 28 years old on this day.  She is the trans woman whistleblower, US soldier, Grand Marshal at San Francisco Pride 2014, who leaked hundreds of thousands of documents to Wikileaks exposing the truth about US, UK and other governments’ war crimes and corruption in Afghanistan, Haiti, Iraq, Israel & the Palestinian Authority, Peru, Venezuela . . .  In doing so, she helped save many lives.  Chelsea was Imprisoned in 2010 and held for months under torturous conditions; in August 2013 she was sentenced to 35 years.

From prison Chelsea has written against the police killings of young people of colour in the US, and in support of immigrants and refugees – including queer and transgender people.

An appeal to quash Chelsea Manning’s conviction is being put forward by her legal team and will be announced in late 2015 or early 2016.  We must get her out!

Sign the petition for Obama to pardon Chelsea.

Donations to her legal fund are needed also.

Despite mass protest, the UK Parliament has just voted to bomb Syria (see Payday’s letter here).  Whistleblowers like Chelsea and now former US drone operators have blown the whistle on the killing of civilians during bombing.

We have a responsibility to defend all whistleblowers who are persecuted for telling the truth about murder and war crimes, rape, torture, neglect, underfunding, starvation wages, corruption . . .  in the military, prison, detention centres, police, hospitals, care homes, and every institution.
