Chelsea Manning is back in jail, despite having been pardoned for the "crime" of informing the public about what the U.S. and other governments were up to.
Click here to sign a petition asking that Manning be freed, again!
This time, Manning is not accused of anything other than refusing to testify against the journalists to whom she blew the whistle.
Pentagon Papers whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg has this to say:
Chelsea Manning is again acting heroically in the name of press freedom, and it’s a travesty that she has been sent back to jail for refusing to testify to a grand jury.
An investigation into WikiLeaks for publishing is a grave threat to all journalists’ rights, and Chelsea is doing us all a service for fighting it.
She has already been tortured, spent years in jail, and has suffered more than enough. She should be released immediately.
