Bradley Manning’s friend David House was able to visit Bradley at the Quantico brig this weekend – this time, without being detained.
Bradley is still under a punitive psychiatric detention at Quantico. Bradley was put on suicide watch as punishment for two days, and remains under an unnecessary prevention of injury order in maximum custody – far beyond any other prisoner in the brig. David told us that Bradley seemed “catatonic,” and was clearly mentally and physically affected by his extreme isolation.
But it’s not all bad: Bradley “brightened up” when discussing the uprisings in Tunisia and Egypt, particularly the role of young people and the Internet in helping spur democratic movements.
P.S. The Bradley Manning Advocacy Fund is a new public advocacy effort for Bradley Manning that will organize events, issue press releases, recruit spokespeople to speak out on Bradley’s behalf, and assemble researchers and witnesses to help with Bradley’s case.
We think this fund to advocate for Bradley is deserving of your support. 100% of contributions to this fund will be used to pay expenses related to the advocacy and defense of Bradley Manning. And thanks to the non-profit group Institute for Media Analysis hosting the Bradley Manning Advocacy Fund, your donation is tax-deductible.
We can only accept donations from the US at this time. To send your donation via mail, click here to download our mail-in contribution form.
