President Obama,

Pardon Chelsea 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 [formerly 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.
