A new level of international power to the movement to

Bradley Manning, 25, gay whisleblower on war crimes

The growing movement in support of Bradley Manning which organised an unprecedented International Day of Action on 23 February, has received a major boost when Bradley spelled out why he became a whistleblower passing information to WikiLeaks. International media, from the magazine Afrique-Asie, to the Huffington Post, English Pravda, Middle-East on line, French Alter Info, and countless periodicals, blogs and websites of many languages, have celebrated his "exceptional courage".  Join the movement to Free Bradley Manning and defend whistleblowers like Julian Assange, conscientious objectors and other refuseniks, women and men, gay and straight, who refuse to kill, rape and torture for the governments of the world.

A man of exceptional courage and principle

In a statement he read in court on 28 February 2013, Bradley Manning forthrightly admitted having leaked information to Wikileaks in order to inform the public of US war crimes and government skulduggery that was being kept from us. He pleaded guilty to the charge of "misusing classified material" and 10 lesser charges, together possibly carrying a sentence of 20 years, but not to the Ēaiding the enemyĒ and related charges that risks him getting life in prison if the prosecution continues to press them as it says it will. Bradley also revealed that before he went to Wikileaks with the material, he approached the Washington Post and the New York Times, but these media showed no interest.

Read Bradley's statement; hear him in this unofficial recording; watch comment by The Young Turks.  He has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for the third time in a row.
