@birgittaj in berlin today – nice pics – Bradley #Manning http://www.flickr.com/photos/_mlx_/8710980821/in/photostream/
Birgitta travels the globe raising awareness and spreading knowledge and asking the questions that need to be asked > everywhere… what can you do to help? Birgitta made a call for everyone to do an action in June – Brad’s trial starts then in Maryland – across the globe this can happen > read Brad’s words on the global square wherever you are: here are some of his words we read at our action in early April when Birgitta was in NYC but you can also read some from Alexa O’briens transcripts here
from the chat logs:
“I want people to see the truth; regardless of who they are, because without information you cannot make informed decisions as a public.”
“God knows what happens now. Hopefully worldwide discussion, debates, and reforms. If not, than we’re doomed.”
“Because it’s public data. It belongs on the public domain. Information should be free.”
“Things that would have an impact on 6.7 billion people. Explaining how the first world exploits the third, in detail, from an internal perspective.”
“We’re human…and we’re killing ourselves… and no one seems to see that, and it bothers me. Apathy. Apathy is far worse than the active aprticipation. I prefer the painful truth over any blissful fantasy.”
from the Providence statement:
“I wanted the American public to know that not everyone in Iraq and Afghanistan are targets that needed to be neutralized, but rather people who were struggling to live in the pressure cooker environment of what we call asymmetric warfare.”
THANK YOU BRADLEY!!!
An action on April 6th 2013 on top of the Empire State Bldg. and the Staten Island Ferry in support of Bradley #Manning w/ Fatima Jafari, Claire Lebowitz, Birgitta Jonsdottir, Jodie Evans, Andy Bichlbaum, #CODEPINK, #YESMEN, Cari Machet.
Bradley Manning has been held by U S authorities far longer than any other prisoner without due process. His trial, set to begin on June 3rd, is an injustice to all, as the system overprosecutes him and many others to protect itself against the truth, while insider war criminals walk free in this tiered and broken legal system. If we utilize the frames of the state Bradley Manning is a Prisoner of War: a war being raged on the ethical consciousness of mankind. A war being raged on the very consciousness of life itself.

What: Free reading of a new play on Bradley Manning’s Birthday.
Where: 45 Bleecker St (at Lafayette) Manhattan, New York
We are marking the day with a presentation of a fascinating and revealing new work, BRADASS87, comprised mainly of the actual chat logs that led to Manning’s arrest in Iraq for allegedly leaking classified information to WikiLeaks, sections from the transcripts of the ongoing pre-trial hearings, and testimony of his treatment under confinement. We think this can be a fascinating window into Bradley Manning and his actions and throw some light on the complexities of this case and on core attitudes towards freedom of information and secrecy in our society.
There will be a presentation afterwards with Chase Madar, constitutional lawyer and author of “The Passion of Bradley Manning”

William Gilson of the NYC 34th Chapter of Veterans for Peace said after seeing the full reading at Judson Church:
“was privileged to have seen the play at Judson — found it to be moving and honest. It must be seen by all. The message has to get out. It is a sensitive portrayal of Pvc.Manning.”
