17 December 2014



Chelsea Manning, one of the world’s best-known whistleblowers, was sentenced in August 2013 to 35 years’ imprisonment.  If the sentence stands, she won’t be out until 2045.  We cannot allow this; we have to get her out.

On her 27th birthday, Chelsea’s supporters from lgbtq, women’s, anti-war, anti-racist, anti-zionist, whistleblowers’ and other movements for change from 14 cities in seven countries called for her release.
