Join Amnesty’s Take Action Campaign for Bradley Manning
Stepping up its efforts after news broke last week of even harsher imprisonment conditions imposed on US Army prisoner Bradley Manning, Amnesty International USA has instituted a Take Action messaging campaign on Manning’s behalf. Messages sent via takeaction.amnestyusa.org will be sent to President Barack Obama and Secretary of Defense Robert M. Gates.
Amnesty International USA sent a letter Secretary Gates on January 24, 2011, calling for the restrictions on Manning to be reviewed after the soldier suffered several days of increased restrictions based on what MCB Quantico officials called his “suicide risk.” Amnesty states that Manning’s latest restrictions, which involve Manning being stripped naked at night, appear to violate the human rights obligations of the United States.
Join the movement to end the punitive detention of Bradley Manning. Visit takeaction.amnestyusa.org to send a message now to the President and the Secretary that you will not allow these human rights violations to continue in your name.
