AirVPN delivers contributions to Manning's legal fund

Recommended Posts

Hello!

We inform you that we have started contributions to Chelsea Manning's legal fund. We are proud to contribute to it but not "glad", meaning that in a really democratic and free country Chelsea Manning would not be detained indefinitely for her refusal to testify before a grand-jury (*) in matters that she exhaustively treated before a court martial, and would not need a legal fund at all by now.

(*) A grand jury means that the public is not allowed entry: the hearings are held in secret


She disclosed nearly 750,000 military and diplomatic documents to WikiLeaks revealing, amongst many other things, war crimes.

I will not participate in a secret process that I morally object to, particularly one that has been used to entrap and persecute activists for protected political speech.
                                                                                                                                                                                                     
Chelsea Manning

Manning should be regarded as a hero. [...] doing what an honest, decent citizen should be doing: letting your population know what the government, the people who rule you are doing. They want to keep it secret of course.

Update: May the 10th, 2019

Chelsea Manning has been released. Chelsea’s release follows the expiration of the term of the EDVA Grand Jury that previously demanded her testimony.

“Unfortunately, even prior to her release, Chelsea was served with another subpoena. This means she is expected to appear before a different grand jury, on Thursday, May 16, 2019, just one week from her release today."
