Veterans, Occupiers and War Opponents Protest US Wars & Demand Release of Pfc. Manning


By War Criminals Watch - Posted on 05 September 2012

 On September 6,protesters will gather in support of the soldier accused of leaking classified records to WikiLeaks, Pfc Manning. They will demand that the Army drops charges against Manning, on the basis that the leaks provided essential information to the public about the effect of the "global war on terror," most notably the Collateral Murderincident where Iraqi civilians were killed.  Protesters insist that all the wars the US is engaged in, both covert and conventional, end immediately.

Jill McLaughlin, a member of World Can't Wait's Steering Committee, stated, "It's ironic that targeted assassinations by drone strikes, greatly expanded by Barack Obama, would qualify as war crimes yet Manning is the one being punished while U.S. government figures are apparently immune from prosecution. If Manning indeed leaked such documents, then he is a hero and must be immediately released."

 World Can’t Wait is a national organization committed to “stopping the crimes of our government.”
