Late last night I was humbly reminded that we need not forget those who have given up their lives- be it to death, incarceration, persecution, (etc)- to try and give free access to truth, knowledge, and/or illegal activities engaged in by the government and then covered up, just to name a few of the reasons…
It’s beyond insane to even consider locking up people for computer/internet and information sharing when we have real criminals, such as rapists and child molesters, out there. The war on drugs is now extending to people who are activists; the war on drugs, the war on activists- all of it is nothing more than war on the people.
Right now we have Edward Snowden and Julian Assange having to worry about their lives, and we have too many young people locked up for using the computer and internet to achieve knowledge and justice; harming no one along the way, benefiting nothing personal from their activities. These people need to know they are not forgotten, that they are appreciated and will see life outside of bars again.
Please click the link HERE and write to as many of the new, young political prisoners as possible; thank them for what they’ve sacrificed and risked. Remind them they have people out here fighting for them, people who care for them.
If it were you in prison, that’s the least you would hope for, yeah?
This article is brilliant; I have fallen in love with the truths within. The author I have the utmost love and respect for as he speaks the truth just as it needs to be spoken. Love it-Follow the author on twitter @ garyyounge – link below.
The whistleblowers are the new generation of American patriots
When Darrell Anderson, 22, joined the US military he knew there was going to be a war, and he wanted to fight it.
“I thought I was going to free Iraqi people,” he told me. “I thought I was going to do a good thing.”
Don’t let Bradley Manning suffer any more than he must… Show your support, write him letters, sign petitions, add your photo signature, just as I just did…. Take action, let him know he is a real hero and soldier for TRUTH! That is something to look up to and admire. I know I do. Resources for all the above suggestions have been collected and posted below. Don’t let him suffer alone any more than he already is.
Thank you for supporting Bradley Manning! You can write to Bradley at the following address:
Bradley is currently eligible to receive mail from anyone who wishes to write to him. Bradley does receive a good amount of mail from supporters; however, he usually only replies to family and longtime friends.
I saw this via a tweet on my phone, because I am still travelling but believe it is important I am just going to copy and paste below…
And thank you to all the new and old people who are reading my blog…thank you!
Listen now: Freedom of the Press Foundation Publishes Leaked Audio of Bradley Manning’s Statement ||
Today, Freedom of the Press Foundation is publishing the full, previously unreleased audio recording of Private First Class Bradley Manning’s speech to the military court in Ft. Meade about his motivations for leaking over 700,000 government documents to WikiLeaks. In addition, we have published highlights from Manning’s statement to the court.
While unofficial transcripts of this statement are widely available, this marks the first time the American public has heard the actual voice of Manning.
Joe Glenton, Afghan veteran: “Bradley Manning served democracy far better than the generals who want him sent to jail”
Written perfectly… See no need to re-write …. links and stuff after article. ->
When Bradley Manning was asked by a military judge recently if he understood what would happen if every soldier ignored their commanders in favour of their own moral code, he answered“You’d have junior ranks making their own decisions until the organisation seizes up.” He did not add, as he might have done, and as I would, is that in a post 9/11 context this might be a good thing.
Back in 2011 when Julian Assange was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, I was thrilled. Whether or not he won didn’t matter; the fact that he was recognized, I hope, let him see how valuable he is to society. We the people need the truth; the uncensored truth, and it takes a really strong soul and a very courageous person to do what is right…especially when it exposing the truth(s) puts their life in danger.
