I am Private Manning
Because I believe the public deserves the truth and whistleblowers deserve a fair trial.
1 days of unjust confinement is enough!
I am Mary I Steele, a retired teacher in Albuquerque, NM. I support Chelsea Manning because of her courage and work to tell the truth. I am also a photographer.
She gives me hope for the survival of truth in the face of danger, threats, and torture. She sets an example for us all, for sacrifice and integrity. I can only aspire to that level of courage and dedication, and hope that should the same sort of challenge be presented to me, that I will have that sort of love to inspire that sort of courage. Thank you, Chelsea, from all of us. Namaste, with love. Be well.
My name is Emilia and I’m an italian illustrator writing from Berlin, Germany. I am Bradley Manning because he thought it was RIGHT to tell the truth to all of us, and now he can’t stand alone.
My name is Zanne. I´m a sex workers rights activist, feminist, bisexual, and I think that nothing is more important than the TRUTH ! - especially when STATES are doing CRIMES
My name is Sasha Azbel, I am an architecture graduate student at the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, Rhode Island, and I support Bradley Manning because I believe it is our social responsibility to report injustice.
My name is Salim Al-Mumin. I am a cartoonist from Dallas, Texas. When I stop and look at Manning’s case I actually can see myself standing in Manning’s shoes. As an incredible bit of coincidence, Manning and I actually have quite a few things in common. We’re both about the same height, we’re both the same age, he’s gay and I’m bisexual, and if I were in Manning’s position and had access to the information he had I’d have done the same thing! That could just as easily be ME on trial right now! THAT is why I support Bradley Manning, and demand he be freed IMMEDIATELY!!!
Our names are Abbey, Asha and Frances and we are students from Tasmania, Australia and we support Manning because when exposing a crime, becomes a crime it means we are ruled by criminals. We (the Youth of today) are the ones who will have to live in a world without freedom of speech if Manning and other whistle blowers are silenced.
