<nettime-ann> Acknowledge Bradley Manning as a "Political Prisoner"


I've started the petition "Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch: Acknowledge Bradley Manning as a "Political Prisoner"" and need your help to get it off the ground.

Will you take 30 seconds to sign it right now? Here's the link:

Here's why it's important:

It is very important that the two biggest human rights organizations acknowledge Bradley Manning as a "Political Prisoner" and/or "Prisoner of Conscience" before his trial begins on June 2, 2013.

If his actions can be misconstrued as "aiding the enemy" by the law, despite his providing the information to the public at large via "non-enemy" news sources, this sets the precedent of criminalizing of all future whistleblowers.   

"Bradley Manning is the most famous political prisoner the United States has. He has been detained without trial for over 1,000 days. Not even the US government denies his alleged acts were political." – Julian Assange
