Rally- Free Assange and Chelsea Manning
February 24 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
This is not just about solidarity with Chelsea Manning and Julian Assange who are imprisoned and tortured for revealing the ugly truth about wars, empire, torture and political corruption, it is also about our right to free speech and the protection of free press. This is especially significant to us, activists for peace, truth and justice.
As she was being taken back into custody Chelsea Manning declared: “I will not participate in a secret process that I morally object to, particularly one that has been historically used to entrap and persecute activists for protected political speech.”
Amnesty International issued the following statement about the Assange “The US government’s unrelenting pursuit of Julian Assange for having published disclosed documents that included possible war crimes committed by the US military is nothing short of a full-scale assault on the right to freedom of expression.”
Join us on this day of global protest for a rally and delivery of a letter to Congressman McGovern asking him to support freedom to Assange and Chelsea Manning and protect our right to free speech and press freedom.
