“We are Bradley Manning” NY Times full page ad 7/25/2013

The Bradley Manning Support Network published a full page ad in the NY times July 25, 2013.

"WE ARE BRADLEY MANNING
We stand with WikiLeaks whistle-blower US Army PFC Bradley Manning. We are American military veterans, artists, journalists, educators, homemakers, lawyers, and citizens. We live in red states and in blue states, in communities urban and rural. We ask you to consider the facts, and join us in declaring:
Enough is enough. Free Bradley Manning now.

In a time of endless war and economic distress, a cloud of government secrecy has eclipsed our republic. We are told that these secrets are necessary, that they save American lives, and we are told the growing National Security state is beyond question. More secrecy does not make us secure when it allows leaders and politicians to avoid accountability. We’ve learned these secrets also conceal crimes: torture, illegal surveillance, and corruption—all committed in our name."
