Amnesty International: Chelsea must be released

On July 30th, one of the world's most important human rights organizations, Amnesty International condemned the US government's blatant over-prosecution and hypocrisy in its handling of Chelsea Manning's case:

"The US government must grant Chelsea Manning clemency, order her immediate release, and implement a thorough and impartial investigation into the crimes she uncovered.

After being convicted of 20 separate charges Chelsea Manning was sentenced to 35 years in prison, much longer than other members of the military convicted of charges such as murder, rape and war crimes.

Before her conviction, Chelsea Manning had already been held for three years in pre-trial detention, including 11 months in conditions which the UN Special Rapporteur on Torture described as cruel and inhumane…"

With your support, Manning's legal appeals can help preserve democracy

In his recent statement, Daniel Ellsberg explains the significance of Chelsea Manning's upcoming legal appeals and how you can help:

"I have been waiting forty years for a legal process to at long last prove the unconstitutionality of the Espionage Act as applied to whistle-blowers (the Supreme Court has never yet addressed this issue). 

This appeals process can accomplish that, and it can reduce Chelsea's sentence by decades. But unfortunately, without your help today it will not happen."

In the last month, we've raised $43,000 of our $100,000 goal!

We need to raise $57,000 by September 1st to ensure that Chelsea's team have the resources to fully fight this stage of the appeals process.
