I Am Bradley Manning: Video Release

I Am Bradley Manning Jun 20, 2013

Editor's note: the recently released I Am Bradley Manning PSA features Indy co-founder Ana Nogueira on its production team.


Ft Meade: A full length video PSA (4:39) in support of Bradley Manning was released on June 18, featuring celebrities and journalists calling for the government to drop the dangerous "aiding the enemy" charge.  The video follows a short teaser video that surfaced at the beginning of Manning's court martial, and calls for an end to Obama's war on whistleblowers – now even more salient in light of whistleblower Edward Snowden's public disclosure of information about secret NSA mass surveillance programs on US citizens, during Manning's historic trial.

The video calls against the reckless prosecution of Bradley Manning by the Obama administration, as well as the importance of whistleblower protections.  Manning's trial, expected to last several more weeks, could open other whistleblowers like Edward Snowden to the death penalty if the government is successful in their prosecution.

This video was created by volunteer producers around the country for the grassroots #IamBradleyManning campaign, where thousands of supporters have already shared photos of themselves in support at iam.bradleymanning.org.
