President Obama,

Pardon Private Manning

BECAUSE THE PUBLIC DESERVES THE TRUTH AND WHISTLEBLOWERS DESERVE PROTECTION.

1 days of unjust confinement is enough!

Part I: Pardon Cover Letter
Part II: Pardon Request
Part III: Amnesty International Supporting Statement

After a prosecution which starkly showcased US government officials' misplaced priorities when it comes to human rights, whistleblower and Nobel Peace Prize nominee Army Private Chelsea [legally Bradley] Manning was sentenced to 35 years in prison.

The information that Manning gave to the public exposed the unjust detainment of innocent people at Guantanamo Bay, shown us the true human cost of our wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and changed journalism forever. There is no evidence that anyone died as a result of the leaked information.

Like Manning, we believe a healthy democracy requires public information. What price will future whistleblowers pay? It’s time for President Obama to pardon Private Manning, and focus on preventing human rights violations instead of punishing whistleblowers.

My name is Nathalie Paravicini, I am a Doctor in Oregon.  I support Pvt Chelsea Manning because I am impressed by her courage and that of other whistleblowers.  I am SO thankful for their courage and wisdom.
Our democracy is strong only because of such actions, in spite of the tremendous personal costs.  We need to protect those that point to governmental abuse, especially at a time of such great consolidation of power in the hands of so few; a time of collusion between plutocrats and the media they control and the overwhelming unspoken control of the military industrial complex.
Thank you Pvt Manning, John Snowden and the many other whistleblowers and militants who have sacrificed their private well-being for the public good.  Down with corporate personhood, let’s protect our commons..

Our society hinges on our humanity. Prosecution should be reserved only for the guilty. Laws that protect criminals become crimes themselves and destroy the credibility of the lawmakers. A lawmaker should be able to correct the path of the laws which have become crimes, if this is not true there can be no law and order. Mr. Obama, please do the right thing.
