Help Bradley Manning

Unless you've been living under a rock for the past little while you know about Wikileaks. What I did not know until yesterday was that Bradley Manning was in the brig at Quantico for allegedly releasing classified documents to Wikileaks. 

He's been there, in solitary confinement for 5 months. They also have him under a “Prevention of Injury” (POI) order. Which among other things means that he is not allowed clothing when he sleeps and he is only given a heavy blanket that cannot be used as a ligature. His lawyer and a psychiatrist say that there is no reason for the POI. It is just another form of torture.

Please click here to sign a letter demanding that the inhumane treatment of Bradley Manning be stopped. You'll also find more information about what is being done to him when he has not been convicted of any crime.
