U.S. whistleblower and international hero Bradley Manning has just been awarded the 2013 Sean MacBride Peace Award by the International Peace Bureau, itself a former recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize, for which Manning is a nominee this year.

The Sean MacBride prize has been awarded each year since 1992 by the International Peace Bureau, founded in 1892.
