Today Is Chelsea Manning’s Birthday

Free Chelsea

 

To send her a birthday card go to https://www.chelseamanning.org/learn-more/write-to-chelsea-manning.

If you don’t why this is of vital importance then please investigate; everything you need to know is out there on the net. (Until yet more of our precious freedom is removed.) For younger folk, please check out the Nuremberg trials. Your schooling probably either ignored or misrepresented what it had to say but in essence the message is that “I was only following orders” is no defence. And in my opinion never is. Those who act from their heart and soul are always worthy of respect rather than torture and imprisonment. Manning knew the risks yet she followed her heart. Shall any of us do less?
