Chelsea Manning Birthday Rally Park Street -Saturday December 17th

Join Us This Saturday To Honor Heroic Wiki-leaks Whistle-blower Chelsea Manning On Her Birthday
unknown media
1:00-2:00 PM Saturday, December 17
Park Street Station on the Boston Common

In honor of Chelsea Manning’s 29th birthday Saturday December 17th 2016, long-time supporters of freedom for Chelsea Manning will rally to demand her release. We invite you to join us.

Imprisoned in 2010 and held for months under torturous conditions, Chelsea Manning was sentenced to 35 years in August 2013 for releasing many military secrets about US crimes in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan among other things. If this stands, she’ll be out in 2045. We cannot let this happen- we have to get her out! We will not leave our sister behind. Chelsea has been incarcerated longer than any other convicted leaker in US history.


Bring yourself and encourage others to attend this important show of support to Chelsea Manning, who deserves our gratitude, not a long prison sentence.
Sign the petition for a presidential pardon from President Barack Obama at:

Supporters outside the Boston area are also encouraged to organize an event in their area, and The Chelsea Manning Support Network, Payday Men’s Network and Queer Strike will publicize it. Write to http://www.chelseamanning.org/ or payday (at) paydaynet.org for more information and to share details of your event. Currently similar actions are planned for London and other cities.

This action by the Boston Chelsea Manning Support Committee, Veterans For Peace and the Committee for Peace and Human Rights, is in response to a call from the Chelsea Manning Support Network, Payday Men’s Network and Queer Strike.
