Pardon Private Bradley Manning!

Because the public deserves the truth and whistleblowers deserve protection

- von Presseticker  -

A fter a prosecution which starkly showcased US government officials’ misplaced priorities when it comes to human rights, whistleblower and Nobel Peace Prize nominee Bradley Manning was sentenced to 35 years in prison.

President Obama, Pardon Bradley Manning!

The information that Bradley gave to the public exposed the unjust detainment of innocent people at Guantanamo Bay, shown us the true human cost of our wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and changed journalism forever. There is no evidence that anyone died as a result of the leaked information.

Like Bradley Manning, we believe a healthy democracy requires public information. What price will future whistleblowers pay?
It’s time for President Obama to pardon Bradley, and focus on preventing human rights violations instead of punishing whistleblowers.
