Amnesty Intl petition calls for
Chelsea Manning's immediate release

Please sign and share this important petition to release Chelsea Manning immediately, launched by Amnesty International. It will be delivered to Maj. Gen. Buchanan, the Convening Authority over Manning's trial, early next year.
Amnesty International is calling for the immediate release of Chelsea Manning and they have launched a petition to demonstrate support.
In the petition they include a letter written to Maj. Gen. Buchanan, which offers powerful arguments for Chelsea's release, particularly her motivation to spark international debate about the war, the extensive time she already spent in pretrial detention, the abusive treatment she received at Quantico prison, the unjust severe sentence imposed that is harsher than that given to murderers, rapists, and war criminals, and lastly the fact that Chelsea exposed information that revealed "potential human rights violations and breaches of international humanitarian law by US troops, Iraqi and Afghan forces operating alongside US forces, military contractors, and the CIA."
This is an important petition and we are asking all supporters to sign and share it widely!
