Free Bradley Manning!

The military colonel acting as judge in the Bradley Manning trial will announce her verdict today at 1 PM EST. He is being tried by this judge alone & not a jury of military officers, which was his choice. The sentencing hearing (which could last weeks) begins tomorrow. This 25-year-old man could serve life in prison without parole for championing the right of people around the world to know the truth of US war crimes.

Appeals can be made to higher military courts as well as the US Supreme Court. We await the verdict today knowing he would be facing the death penalty without the international campaign waged in his defense. Our work in his defense continues: Free Bradley Manning!
