Update from Oslo: Bradley Manning Nobel Peace Prize
You helped tell the world that Bradley Manning deserves the Nobel Peace Prize.
RootsAction’s Norman Solomon just delivered our petition with over 100,000 signers to the Nobel Committee in Oslo — and major news coverage went around the world.
Bradley Manning has been convicted for bravely exposing serious crimes by the U.S. government. With sentencing imminent, this would be a very good time to inform people in your community about why you signed our historic petition.
Please contact your local media outlets to urge them to get the story right while reporting on a “local angle” including your own involvement in the ManningNobel.org petition.
Also, please share those wire service stories on social media and urge people to add their names to our ongoing petition at ManningNobel.org.
Please forward this email widely to like-minded friends.
