Here’s @AmbJohnBolton saying Chelsea Manning should get the death penalty for disclosing classified information. Genuinely one of the most chilling interviews I’ve ever seen.

Ten Years Since WikiLeaks Published the “Collateral Murder” Video

The Collateral Murder video will be remembered for decades as testimony to the barbarity of imperialist war. Its contents are more significant than ever, amid stepped-up inter-imperialist tensions and preparations for new and catastrophic military conflicts.

Workers, students and young people must do everything they can to fight for Assange’s freedom and for the safety and security of all those involved in this historic exposure of militarism and war.

Yesterday, WikiLeaks held an online meeting marking the anniversary of Collateral Murder, at which Hraffnson and others spoke. It can be viewed here.

Assanges Auslieferung, Eskalation des US-Terrorkriegs

Netzwerke eines ansteckenden Mutes, die durch Wellen von Whistleblowern entstanden, begannen die Verschwörung der Regierung aufzulösen. Das wiederbelebte Herz der Demokratie inspiriert uns jetzt dazu, uns auf Gerechtigkeit hin zu bewegen, unsere eigene Bedeutung zu erkennen und einander in die Augen zu schauen, wenn wir zu dem werden, was wir sein sollen – zu den Bewegern und Gestaltern unserer eigenen Geschichte. Nur durch den Mut jedes Einzelnen, die Angst zu überwinden und diesem entfesselten Terror entgegenzutreten, können wir diesen Krieg beenden und diejenigen befreien, die ihre Freiheit geopfert haben, damit wir alle frei sein können.

Gericht lässt Chelsea Manning nach Selbstmordversuch endlich frei

Ich habe mich schon früher dagegen gewehrt, dass das Justizministerium Gand Jurys einsetzt, um bestimmte Personen zu bestrafen, die sich weigern, mit Bundesermittlungen zusammenzuarbeiten.

Ordering Manning’s release, Judge Anthony J Trenga wrote: “The court finds Ms Manning’s appearance before the grand jury is no longer needed, in light of which her detention no longer serves any coercive purpose.”

Statement From Chelsea Manning’s Legal Team: Ms. Manning is Recovering in Hospital, Scheduled to Appear in Court Friday

Writing in a 2019 letter to Judge Trenga, Ms. Manning said: “I object to this grand jury … as an effort to frighten journalists and publishers, who serve a crucial public good. I have had these values since I was a child, and I’ve had years of confinement to reflect on them. For much of that time, I depended for survival on my values, my decisions, and my conscience. I will not abandon them now.”

What Chelsea Manning teaches us about the U.S. military’s mental health crisis

(17.01.2017)

In Iraq, a sign hung above the desks of the targeting analysts in the intelligence shop where Manning worked: “If you think for one second you can come in here and bug us with sissy shit you might want to rethink your pathetic life.”

Der Kongress ist Trumps Mitverschwörer gegen die Freiheit

Das vielleicht abscheulichste Beispiel für die Heuchelei der Kongressgegner Trumps ist, wie viele von denen, die sich über die Sicherheit des Ukrainegate-„Whistleblowers“ sorgen, über die Mitschuld der Trump-Administration an der unmenschlichen Behandlung des WikiLeaks-Gründers Julian Assange schweigen oder diese unterstützen. Sie schweigen auch, wenn die US-Regierung Chelsea Manning wieder ins Gefängnis wirft, weil sie sich weigert, der Verfolgung von Herrn Assange durch die Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika zu helfen.

Chelsea Mannings Anwältin weist Verschwörungsvorwürfe gegen Julian Assange zurück

Die WSWS wird eine Kritik der zweiteiligen Sendung „Four Corners“ veröffentlichen, sobald nächsten Montagabend der zweite Beitrag gezeigt wurde. Doch Hollanders Äußerungen sind bereits jetzt ein schwerer Schlag gegen die Trump-Regierung, die eine Auslieferung Assanges wegen Verstößen gegen den Espionage Act herbeiführen will. Wegen der bisher eingereichten Anklagepunkte droht Assange schon jetzt eine Haftstrafe von 175 Jahren.

** Today, Chelsea was not only put back in jail, but Judge Anthony Trenga ordered her to be fined $500 every day she is in custody after 30 days and $1,000 every day she is in custody after 60 days. This is unprecedented.

Extradition of Julian Assange Threatens Us All

MEMORANDUM FOR: The governments and people of the United Kingdom and the United States
FROM: Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPs)
SUBJECT: Extradition of Julian Assange Threatens Us All

On April 11, London police forcibly removed WikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange from the embassy of Ecuador after that country’s president, Lenin Moreno, abruptly revoked his predecessor’s grant of asylum. The United States government immediately requested Assange’s extradition for prosecution under a charge of “conspiracy to commit computer intrusion” under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA).

Former U.S. Government officials promptly appeared in popular media offering soothing assurances that Assange’s arrest threatens neither constitutional rights nor the practice of journalism, and major newspapers like The New York Times and The Washington Post fell into line.

(…)

The great American writer Henry David Thoreau wrote, “It takes two to speak the truth–one to speak and one to hear.” Today, it takes three to speak the truth–one to speak, one to hear, and one to defend the first two in court. If the US Government has its way, there will be no defense, no truth.
