Free Chelsea Manning and Julian Assange
Write letters of support to Chelsea Manning and Julian Assange! After years of obfuscation, the U.S. has finally revealed its hand by charging Julian Assange with espionage for exposing US war crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan. As a result, Chelsea Manning has been re-imprisoned for her continued refusal to testify against Assange. If the U.S. is successful in extraditing Assange to our country, it will mark the first time that the espionage act has been used to prosecute a publisher. Chelsea Manning William G. Truesdale Adult Detention Center 2001 Mill Road Alexandria, VA 22314 Julian Assange DOB: 3/07/1971 HMP Belmarsh Western Way London SE28 OEB UK Additionally, write letters to the governor of Belmarsh, Rob Davis, protesting the imprisonment and torture of Julian Assange. You can use the template below: Dear Governor Rob Davis, I am writing to protest the horrific treatment of Julian Assange and to demand his immediate release in order to receive professional medical care. The United Nations special rapporteur on torture has stated that Assange is suffering from extreme psychological torture and his health has declined precipitously since his imprisonment at Belmarsh. As a political prisoner unlawfully detained by the UK due to pressure from the US, he should be released immediately. Jail the war criminals not the publisher.
