Let Bradley Manning know you care

No 396 Posted by fw, January 29, 2012

The Bradley Manning Support Network and Revolution Truth are co-sponsoring a Bradley Manning Campaign. Today is January 29, 2012. Sign on right now to either campaign before they end. Go to the former website to sign a petition and the latter to add your name to a letter to Bradley.

If I were Bradley I would like to know that someone out there cares enough to do this for me. It’s not asking much. Please show Bradley that you care.

Here’s the text of Revolution Truth’s letter to Bradley

Bradley,

We hope that this letter finds you healthy and strong. You have already seen adversity that most people do not bear in a lifetime, and we are sadly aware of the hardships you face. We are sending this letter to you in the hopes that our feelings of support may help you to bear these days. We want you to know that we, people all over the world, are fighting for you. We can gladly say that we are many.

Your case has become a great symbol to all of us. It has bound us together in an awareness of our shared interests, shared responsibilities, and shared fate. There is much that we do not know, but irrespective of the truths of your particular case, your flag has become the standard of an indefatigable civil movement, straddling generations and borders, striving inexorably against the great injustices of our time, for which the injustices you suffer are the tragic emblem. Your tenure in that small prison cell has reached across the world, moving many people, ushering a generation to awareness and action. Your name is on all our lips, and your face, for us, is an icon of moral courage.

You stand accused of upholding justice when her bearers let her banner fall. You are accused of actions that no law should rightly prohibit while remaining law. When the law is turned against conscience and courage, it is turned against itself. Our society has lost its way.

Your prosecution under this ruse of justice is already written into history as a persecution, not of one man, but of us all. It is not a single injustice, but an injustice to end the pretense of justice. It is unique and urgent. It is wrong that you suffer, while those who committed the crimes that were exposed, who started a horrific and unjustifiable war based on lies, are excused. Whether you did what you are accused of or not, what you have gone through since your arrest would be unimaginable for most of us. You are a hero among us. We cannot, and will not, turn away from supporting you.

We are keenly aware of your sacrifice. Be strong for us, Bradley, because we know that you suffer as one of us, for us. We will be relentless in our efforts to see justice done by you. Accept our fellowship, and know this: you are forever ours now and we salute you, and forever thank you.

We hold you in our hearts. We stand with you.

We are all Bradley Manning.
Your brothers, sisters, friends,

The undersigned.

  1. Heroes are people who think for themselves and say “enough is enough.” I commend you for your courage in doing the right thing and showing the world that not everyone will simply “follow orders.”

  2. You have proved that the US (and many other countries as well) is not run by the people always seen on TV pretending to have everybody’s best interest at heart. The real ones do not appear on TV. It is unbelievable that Americans still care about political fund raising and primaries.

  3. Bradley is a True Hero and it is horrible that the Obama Administration believes we haven’t lost all faith in their idea of justice! Wake up Obama! You are not the President I voted for nor will again. Personally I feel Their War on Truth, Wikileaks and Bradley Manning are the MAIN reasons I will not support them again. NDAA is horrible enough but Bradley has been a pawn in this game for far too long!
