Private First Class

Bradley Manning

Bradley Manning

Claw over the parapet
Voice raised
Is voice gagged.
The world as in fact it is,
Isn’t. In a Democracy of liars
Is a lock-up for facts.

Three blows of a whistle:
One in hiding, embassy, London
One in hiding, transit building, Moscow
One in prison, U.S.A., somewhere

The stars and striping
Are bruises and lashes
This is the land of the free –
Where the fee for whistling
Is 136 years.

Bradley Manning is born free and is everywhere in chains.

— Peter Kennard

On Wednesday Bradley Manning was sentenced in a military court to 35 years in prison.

Bradley Manning was convicted for 35 years for uncovering US atrocities, Torture, Abuse, Soldiers Laughing As They Killed Innocent Civilians.

Edward Snowden was wise not to return to the USA.
