I want people to support Bradley Manning and phone the White House on Thursday February 3, 2011. We asked President Bush to define torture, now ask President Obama to stop the torture of Bradley Manning immediately or outline his definition of torture.
Whatever you consider to be your most important cause in bringing forward a defined need for correction by government, a need for some justice or the need for sustainability the case of Bradley Manning is of primary concern for you.
Wherever obvious injustice, corruption, unlawful occupations, private corporate bulldozing and resource degradation is found (fed and entrenched sometimes over a century, such as Hawaiian occupation) the over-riding and core cause of injustice is the lack of truth and transparency in Government.
The apparent handover of classified information by U.S. Private First Class Bradley Manning to WikiLeaks internet journal made public the severity of a global culture of undemocratic process – which costs lives and incurs gross suffering throughout ground zero; planet Earth.
Q: If truth were immediately declassified, if governments were open and honest, how would my favourite cause be affected?
A: Unimaginably positive I believe, and for all the struggle and nonsense activists are confronted with, perhaps truth in Government would resolve many conflicts like a knife passing through soft butter.
But for harmless truth, Bradley Manning is now compounded in a U.S. military prison in Quantico, Virginia. He is punished now for the eighth consecutive month by isolation and slow inhumane torture. Bradley has not been tried or convicted with anything.
We need to remind ourselves: the WikiLeak’s U.S. war and diplomatic evidence released is not so overwhelming for us to become blinded and nullified, but rather show the need to be centered, assured, outraged and bright. Comfortable people might consider that yes, the world is unfair and that living with bullies is a given, that they will have their day of justice in another life or something. But being how the dots on our local and universal matrix are linked, and now knowing the magnitude of government failure, like an unbelievably huge disaster, the need for change is absolutely paramount for survival. The authorities lie about everything including Climate Change putting a huge array of life at risk.
Support Bradley Manning until ONE: he is freed of jail, and TWO: if indeed he is the whistle, then support his highest regard in the U.S.A. and throughout humanity.
Thankfully the Egyptian youth and people get it! Take note, they have dropped the daily treadmill of supporting despots and they are on THE STREET as I post this on the Day of the Million Man March.
Government movers and shakers the world over, especially U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton must be sharply awoken in the last few days of the Egyptian revolution; that The People always have the organic power and the means of CHANGE – when the people in the west choose to turn off Murdock media and meet on the street and the village square it defies and puts military expense in the waste basket.
The U.S. Government, Wall Street, and the global system is not too big too fail, it is too big to continue and ignore.
Hopefully the dots are joining for people. Now is the time to support Egyptians and billions of Earth’s citizens suffering under repressive local rule and Globalization – something for which imperial U.S.A. and war profiteers have developed through lies and cover-ups, as if the people are non-participants in their crazy notion of democracy.
Phone the White House and give the Administration that unsettling wake up call that President Mubarak is experiencing today as he hides so low.
