UPDATE: You can be among the first to see a terrific video just released in support of Bradley Manning -- featuring Daniel Ellsberg, Oliver Stone, Alice Walker, Phil Donahue, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Moby, Michael Ratner, Matt Taibbi, Lt. Dan Choi, Tom Morello, Wallace Shawn and many others.
“The information that Bradley gave to the public has been a catalyst for pro-democracy movements in the Arab world, exposed the unjust detainment of innocent people at Guantanamo Bay, shown us the true human cost of our wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and changed journalism forever,” the video’s producers point out.
You can watch the inspiring new video at the “I Am Bradley Manning” website.
