Emergency Response to Bradley Manning's Sentencing!

STAND WITH A SOLDIER FOR HUMANITY!

Downtown Vancouver, Canada

In the morning of Wednesday, August 21, 2013, U.S. military judge

Colonel Denise Lind will be sentencing Bradley Manning. He faces

up to 90 years in prison for standing up for humanity by exposing

U.S. atrocities and war crimes in Iraq, Afghanistan and around the

world, through the release of over 260,000 classified U.S.

diplomatic cables, videos and documents.

In the final days of his trial, which ended on August 19, the U.S.

government prosecutors asked the judge to sentence Bradley

Manning to 60 years in prison and a $100,000 fine. Bradley

Manning is a hero and a Soldier for Humanity, even one more

minute behind prison bars is a minute too many!

In response to the sentencing, people all over the world will be

coming out onto the streets to demand the U.S. government

immediately free Bradley Manning. We invite you to join with

MAWO on the streets of Vancouver in the world-wide call to

FREE BRADLEY MANNING!

BECAUSE EXPOSING WAR-CRIMES IS NOT A CRIME!

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.

rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
