Update 11/25/13: Amnesty Intl launches petition asking for Chelsea’s immediate release

Amnesty International is calling for the immediate release of Chelsea Manning and they have launched a petition to demonstrate support.

In the petition they include a letter written to Maj. Gen. Buchanan, which offers powerful arguments for Chelsea’s release, particularly Manning’s motivation to spark international debate about the wars, the extensive time she already spent in pretrial detention, the abusive treatment she received at Quantico prison, the unjust severe sentence imposed that is harsher than that given to murderers, rapists, and war criminals, and lastly the fact that Chelsea exposed information that revealed “potential human rights violations and breaches of international humanitarian law by US troops, Iraqi and Afghan forces operating alongside US forces, military contractors, and the CIA.”

This is an important petition and we are asking all supporters to sign and share it widely!
