«I wanted people to see the truth, regardless of who they are, because without

Truth is treason in the empire of lies.

In an Orwellian world, the Guilty imprison the Good.

Free Bradley Manning!

Blowing the whistle for war crimes is not a crime!More information about this action and the police intimidation against the protestors here.

Bradley Manning is a 24-year-old USA soldier, imprisoned since May 2010. He allegedly blew the whistle on USA war crimes, by giving hundreds of thousands of classified documents to Wikileaks, among them the infamous “Collateral Murder” video: evidence of a USA Army helicopter crew cold-bloodedly killing 11 or more civilians and severely wounding two young children in Iraq in 2007. The prehearing of Bradley Manning’s court martial started on 16 December 2011. One of the charges against him, “aiding the enemy”, could lead to the death penalty.
