Please take a few minutes today to support Bradley Manning

Courage to Resist

As you know, Bradley Manning was transferred to Leavenworth in April, and his lawyer
confirms that he is now treated like other prisoners. This dramatic improvement in
his conditions wouldn't have happened without people like you taking action.
Now we need a public accounting for Bradley's allegedly torturous and illegal
confinement conditions for ten months at Quantico. The United Nations is
investigating the matter, but US officials are still denying their reasonable
request to meet with Bradley.

Will you take a few minutes to make two important phone calls for Bradley today?
We want to put pressure on the Obama Administration and the Secretary of the Army to
comply with the United Nations' demand. Juan Mendez, the UN's top official on
torture, has requested unmonitored meetings with Bradley. Mr. Mendez wants to insure
that international protocol for prisoner treatment and justice are followed. (Read
the UN’s recent statement here.)

Call President Obama

The White House switchboard
Call Secretary of the Army
Public Affairs Officer Lt. Anne Edgecomb

When you call, please urge President Obama and Secretary of the Army John McHugh to
respect the UN Convention Against Torture and to allow UN Special Rapporteur on
Torture Juan Mendez to conduct an official visit with Bradley Manning. (Click here
for more background information and talking points.)
Then please spread the word! Ask your friends and family to call as well by sharing
this action on Facebook and Twitter and by forwarding this email.
Thank you for supporting Bradley.
