President Obama: Pardon Chelsea Manning

On Wednesday, August 21st, the day judge Denise Lind sentenced Bradley (formerly), now Chelsea Manning to 35 years in prison, CODEPINK, Kansas held signs and blew whistles at one of the busiest intersections in Salina, asking Obama to pardon Chelsea. We were pleasantly surprised to hear so many blowing of horns in support - without exaggeration almost 95 % of the people passing by showed support. And we were also very happy to see many more thumbs than the middle¬†

finger!

We also wrote an article on the sentencing of Manning that can be read here: http://www.counterpunch.org/2013/08/22/35-years-for-manning-35-cheers-for-us-hypocrisy/
