Fellow whistle-blowers stage event for hero Bradley Manning to pay legal fees

On September 30, whistle-blowers, activists, and journalists will speak out for imprisoned soldier and accused WikiLeaks whistle-blower PFC Bradley Manning at Georgetown University's Law Center. Author Chris Hedges, DOJ whistle-blower Jesselyn Radack, NSA whistle-blower Thomas Drake, retired US Army Colonel and State Department Diplomat turned Iraq War objector Ann Wright, and friend of Manning's David House will explain the importance of whistle-blowing, recount the efforts to bring attention to Bradley's case, and the implications a potential conviction would have on our civil liberties to come.

"Bradley Manning is an American hero facing life in prison for doing the right thing," Jeff Paterson of the Bradley Manning Support Network says. "This event will underscore the unfair prosecution of a courageous young man motivated by nothing more than the desire to do the right thing in the context of a wrong war."

The Bradley Manning Support Network and the Georgetown Chapter of the National Lawyers Guild together present the event, which will run from 5-7:30 PM EST at the Law Center, located at 600 New Jersey Ave NW, Washington DC. Those who can't attend the event are encouraged to watch or listen to the speeches live online at BradleyManning.org.

Bradley Manning is approaching 900 days in prison, and his court martial trial won't begin until at least February 4, 2012. The military charges Bradley with indirectly "aiding the enemy," despite the fact that chat logs attributed to the young private show that he sought to expose war crimes, corporate abuse, and civilian casualties to the American public.
