Bradley Manning Support Network Praises New Advocacy Organization
New Advocacy Organization Adds to the Growing Number of Individuals and Organizations Standing Up for Bradley Manning
February 22, 2011, Washington, DC – The Bradley Manning Support Network is proud to support the newest addition to the movement to support accused WikiLeaks whistleblower Pfc. Bradley Manning. The Bradley Manning Advocacy Fund launched earlier today in support of the United States Army soldier accused of disclosing classified materials. The Fund focuses on connecting the media and the public with friends, experts, journalists, retired military members, whistle-blowers and academics who can provide insight and expertise on PFC Manning and his case, as well as correcting widespread misinformation.
“The Advocacy Fund serves a vital function in our movement, providing the public with truthful information about the case and combating the widespread misinformation about Manning. We’re happy to be working alongside the Advocacy Fund and promoting each others’ efforts,” said Mike Gogulski, founder and steering committee member of the Bradley Manning Support Network.
The Advocacy Fund is a 501(c)(4) organization hosted by the Institute for Media Analysis. To learn more about the advocacy fund, contact:

The Bradley Manning Support Network will be providing links to the Advocacy Fund in the future, so that donors can decide whether to fund the legal defense and grassroots campaign, the media effort or both.
