Call-in to Obama: Demand Promised Whistleblower Protections.
Call in to the national Obama campaign office at 312-698-3670 and demand that Bradley Manning be given the whistleblower protections that Obama promised. Afterwards, consider contacting the local campaign office (listed below) and please share your experience on Facebook, Twitter, and everywhere else you can think of!
Bradley Manning’s next motion hearing will be held June 6-8 at Fort Meade, MD and we are asking supporters to take this opportunity to let President Obama and his campaign know that Bradley Manning is a whistleblower that deserves the government’s utmost protection – not a life sentence. In solidarity with Bradley’s next hearing, please call-in to your nearest Obama campaign office and tell them that Bradley Manning is a whistleblower: one that Obama promised to protect. Help free Bradley Manning!
Obama’s campaign promise to protect those who expose fraud and abuse could not be clearer. After praising whistle-blowers as vital to American democracy, he says,
“Barack Obama will strengthen whistleblower laws to protect federal workers who expose waste, fraud, and abuse of authority in government. Obama will ensure that federal agencies expedite the process for reviewing whistleblower claims and whistleblowers have full access to courts and due process.”
But after two years without court martial, eleven months of which spent in abusive solitary confinement, Bradley Manning has not received due process. Further, the government is shielding his hearings from public scrutiny, keeping essential records secret. Prosecutors do not want Bradley’s motive to play a role in the trial. But Bradley Manning is a whistle-blower. Chat logs attributed to an online discussion with Bradley reveal his honorable intent: for the public to know the truth, and for that truth to inspire worldwide debate and reform. Pressure the president to acknowledge Bradley Manning’s status as a whistleblower and to uphold his campaign promise to protect him.
