On Tuesday December 13th at 1400hrs, Michael Lyons and others from Veterans for Peace UK will gather at the U.S. Embassy in London to demand the immediate release of Bradley Manning and recognition that exposing war crimes is not a crime.

Michael Lyons is a former Navy medic who was released from Colchester Military Prison in November. He served a seven month sentence for refusing to carry out rifle training in preparation for deployment to Afghanistan. Lyons had applied for Conscientious Objector status after reading the “Afghan War Logs” released by Wikileaks.

Bradley Manning is a U.S. Army intelligence analyst who is accused of leaking the “Afghan War Logs” to Wikileaks. Manning has been held in U.S. military custody for 18 months. He faces multiple charges which would lead to a lifetime of imprisonment if convicted. His pre-trial hearing begins before a military tribunal on Friday 16th December at Fort Meade, Maryland, USA

Michael Lyons stated “I am grateful to Wikileaks for providing the information that enabled me to make an informed decision of conscience. I am outraged by the continued imprisonment of Bradley Manning, exposing war crimes is not a crime”.

Join Us tomorrow 1400hrs at the U.S. Embassy.

    It is great to see British veterans support Bradley Manning. He is a whistle-blower, not a traitor. He can only expect to be given a Soviet-era show trial by the US military – not a fair trial. None of the admissible evidence will deal with the long list of war crimes in Afghanistan and Iraq. Only through secrecy, deceit and connivance with their senior partners in crime could the Blair government have taken Britain into these two wars of aggression.

    Now David Cameron is itching to take Britain into another needless and catastrophic war of aggression against the people of Iran. Support Bradley Manning. Where he is alleged to have stepped, there go all of us. We all owe Bradley a great debt of gratitude. I say this as a reluctant veteran of the CIA’s Secret War in Laos – yes there war British collaboration. Let the secrets out in the public interest.
