Write a letter supporting PVT Mannings request for clemency!

Under the Uniform Code of Military Justice, Convening Authorities are granted the power to reduce or eliminate a convicted soldiers sentence. They use this power when they feel the court martial failed to deliver justice. As Commanding General of the Military District of Washington, Major General Jeffrey S. Buchanan is the only other individual besides President Obama with the power to ameliorate WikiLeaks whistle-blower PVT Mannings sentence in the immediate future.

We are now requesting letters from professors, law experts, human rights advocates, politicians, artists, veterans, and concerned citizens urging Maj. Gen. Buchanan to reduce PVT Mannings sentence. These letters will be submitted as part of an application for clemency from PVT Mannings legal defense. These letters, once completed, should be sent to nathan@bradleymanning.org
