Photo campaign marks Bradley's 1,000th day behind bars
2:40pm Friday 22nd February 2013 in News
Supporters of Bradley Manning, a US soldier facing life imprisonment for leaking military information, have signed up to a photo project in their hundreds.
Bradley attended Tasker Milward School, Haverfordwest, for a number of years and still has family in Milford Haven.
People from across the world have expressed their solidarity with Bradley, aged 24, by posing for pictures holding signs declaring ‘I am Bradley Manning’.
Some participants even stripped to their underwear in reference to Bradley’s treatment while at a marine brig following his arrest, where he was kept in solitary confinement and had his clothes removed.
The images are collected on website iam.bradley manning.org.
Tomorrow (Saturday) marks Bradley’s 1,000th day behind bars awaiting trial with his court martial now delayed until early June.
A new petition calling for Bradley to be released has been set up by Pentagon Papers whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg, the Center for Constitutional Rights, and the Bradley Manning Support Network.
