Free Bradley Manning! Solidarity Rally Sun 3/20 1pm-3pm Fort Snelling, MN
Stop torturing him at Quantico now!

ree Bradley Manning! Torture is a crime! Exposing war crimes is not!

Date: Sunday, March 20th, 2011
Time: 1pm - 3pm
Location:
Bishop Henry Whipple Federal Building
1 Federal Drive
Fort Snelling, MN 55111
Note: for those who use public transportation, get off at the lightrail stop for Fort Snelling Station.

Free Bradley Manning! Demand they stop torturing him at Quantico immediately!

Bradley Manning is now facing over 22 charges including "aiding the enemy", which may carry the death penalty. Even more urgently, he is being tortured at Quantico - and this mistreatment must stop immediately.

In solidarity with the rally taking place on March 20th in Quantico, VA, we are hosting a local rally at the Bishop Henry Whipple Federal Building which hosts numerous federal agencies including the local offices for Department of Defense agencies.

If you can't make it to the Twin Cities, consider hosting your own rally on March 20th at an appropriate site near you. Let's show the world that we are tired of our own government justifying torture in our name.

1. Manning's Appeal of Refusal to Relax Conditions Outlines More Details of Mistreatment
http://www.truth-out.org/mannings-appeal-refusal-relax-conditions-outlines-more-details-mistreatment68513

...There are two incidents that stand out above the daily abuse Manning has received while being held in virtual solitary confinement for ten months in pretrial detention: he was put on suicide watch, his clothes were taken away from him.

On January 18, 2010, the brig commander, James Averhart, who has since been replaced, put Manning on suicide watch. As Manning describes it: "Suicide Risk assignment resulted in me being required to remain in my cell for 24 hours a day. I was stripped of all clothing with the exception of my underwear. My prescription eyeglasses were taken away from me and I was forced to sit in essential blindness." Here is what led to him being placed in this even more abusive condition......


...") CWO4 Averhart placed me on Suicide Risk, over the recommendation of Capt. Hocter and the defense forensic psychiatrist, Capt. Moore. His decision was also in violation of Secretary of Navy Instruction ("SECNAVINST") 1649.9C Paragraph 4205.5d. As a result of being placed on Suicide Risk, I was confined to my cell for 24 hours a day. I was also stripped of all clothing with the exception of my underwear. Additionally, my prescription eyeglasses were taken away from me. Due to not having my glasses, I was forced to sit in essential blindness during the day. I remained on Suicide Risk until 21 January 2010. The determination to place me on Suicide Risk was without justification and therefore constitutes unlawful pretrial punishment".....



So many people writing, emailing, or calling the White House and the abuse continues. Marines abusing/Torturing a soldier. When will it end?
