Stop Torturing Bradley Manning!
It's shocking news: Glenn Greenwald reports that U.S. Army Private Bradley Manning is being tortured. Manning is accused of leaking unflattering information about the Afghanistan war to WikiLeaks, but hasn't been convicted of -- or even tried for -- any crime.
He's being held at the U.S. Marine brig in Quantico, and according to Greenwald:
Manning has been subjected for many months without pause to inhumane, personality-erasing, soul-destroying, insanity-inducing conditions of isolation similar to those perfected at America's Supermax prison in Florence, Colorado: all without so much as having been convicted of anything.
Will you sign on at right to show your support for Manning and his most basic civil rights?
PETITION TO SECRETARY OF THE ARMY, THE HONORABLE JOHN M. MCHUGH:
Torture is absolutely unacceptable, and un-American! Stop violating Private Bradley Manning's basic rights: End the torture and put him on trial or set him free.
