"I didn’t know there was an organization in Iceland called the Bradley Manning support network, even though I have been a part of the international organization from the beginning :) It is the Pirate Party which organizes the solidarity meeting. It’s also nothing new for the US Embassy to warn their citizens about participating (or showing up for) protests. I heard about a similar letter when Friends of Tibetin Iceland organized a peaceful protest outside Harpa [concert&conference hall]. The main message is therefore: Don’t witness civil disobedience, you could get infected.”

Birgitta Jonsdottir MP for the Icelandic Pirate Party 

protest for Chelsea Manning's rights was held outside the US Embassy in Iceland Yesterday. The Embassy released an "Emergency Message for U.S Citizens in Iceland" encouraging them to stay away. Read more here.

The event was organized by the Pirate Party and the ‘Facebook Event’ discription read:

A military judge on Wednesday morning sentenced Army Pfc. Chelsea Manning to 35 years in prison for leaking hundreds of thousands of classified documents among them a video of a US helicopter attack that killed at least eleven Iraqi civilians to the website Wikileaks. Among the dead were two working Reuters reporters. Two children were also severely wounded in the attack.

Join us tomorrow outside the US Embassy, to show Chelsea your support.
