Hands off Chelsea

On International Women’s Day, Chelsea Manning was wrongfully jailed for refusing to participate in a secret WikiLeaks Grand Jury investigation. While in jail she was served with a second subpoena. After being released, Chelsea Manning was wrongfully jailed a second time for again refusing to testify in front of a WikiLeaks Grand Jury.The U.S. government’s continued imprisonment of Chelsea Manning is nothing more than full-scale harassment.


Petition

We urge the U.S. Attorney for the East District of Virginia G. Zachary Terwilliger to show compassion and grant a medical release of our sister Chelsea Manning.

Chelsea is a trans woman who has suffered harsh treatment during her detention in Quantico. She was held in solitary confinement, stripped of her garments, and tortured. While in federal prison, she attempted suicide more than once. She was dishonorably discharged from the Army; and had already served 1,294 days in prison when she was sentenced in August 2013 to 35 years confinement with the possibility of parole in 8 years. She was convicted in July 2013 for a series of offenses including violations of the Espionage Act, after leaking more than 700,000 classified files of diplomatic cables and other documents to Wikileaks widely known as “Cablegate.” Included in these were videos of the massacre of civilians in both the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Manning has testified repeatedly on the issue. With our support, we generated a massive outcry, influencing President Obama to use his last days in office to do the right thing and commute her sentence.

We are urging U.S. Attorney G. Zachary Terwilliger to do the right thing and grant Chelsea a medical release from jail.

Sincerely,

    It’s not a crime to make a crime known as Chelsea Manning has done.

    She served her time in prison — in solitary — and was tortured at the US government’s

    hands — until she was released under pardon by President Obama.

    That the US government has once again imprisoned her — is again holding her in

    isolation — and is torturing her again is unacceptable to the laws of our nation and

    the alleged spirit of the nation. Global Warming is the national emergency created by

    the greed of wealthy Elites here and capitalism in its exploitation of nature with likely

    only two years or less to respond. That the US government continues to interfere with

    whistleblowers like Julian Assange and Chelsea Manning because they are alerting

    the public to the crimes of our government makes clear that this is a government fully

    and totally corrupted by right wing control and trying to hide that corruption.

    Release Chelsea Manning!

    How ignorant to jail a whistleblower who exposed the craven crimes of our solders who murdered journalists and innocent people in the streets of Iraq FOR NO REASON. The gun ship voices that were recorded were cheering the gunners on and using disgusting language bathed in uproarious delight while giving orders to MURDER. Why in the hell would Chelsea Mannlng be responsible for this illegal behaviour in our name, the taxpayers who pay these deplorables.
