A Note On The Boston Protest In Defense Of Pvt. Bradley Manning-Blessed Are The Whistleblowers
16 Jan 2011
Free Pvt. Bradley Manning! Hands Off Julian Assange!
This note refers to a protest held in Boston on January 15, 2010 in defense of Army Pvt. Bradley Manning and Wikileaks leader Julian Assange.

****
The defense of these individuals who are under American and world governmental attack for simply doing honorable things in the old democratic tradition is important in the struggle to preserve all our dwindling democratic rights. The defense of the public square that I have been at pains to talk about lately, post-Arizona January shoot-out massacre, starts for us with the defense of Manning and Assange. I would also point out that in Boston this defense was, unlike the issue of opposition to the the Obama Afghanistan war policies, led by young people. Hooray!
