Urgent Petition in Support of Chelsea Manning's Human Rights

Please sign this petition now:

Dear Boards Branch, Directorate of Inmate Administration:

Putting any human being in indefinite solitary confinement is inexcusable, and for offenses as trivial as these (an expired tube of toothpaste, and possession of magazines?) it is a discredit to America's military and its system of justice. We demand that these charges against Chelsea Manning be dropped, and request that Chelsea's hearing on August 18th be made open to the public, to ensure she is treated fairly.
