Chelsea Manning will be 28 years old on this day, the sixth year she’ll have spent her birthday behind bars for exposing war crimes.
She is a trans woman whistleblower, US soldier, Grand Marshal at San Francisco Pride 2014, who leaked hundreds of thousands of documents to Wikileaks exposing the truth about US, UK and other governments’ war crimes and corruption in Afghanistan, Haiti, Iraq, Israel & the Palestinian Authority . . . In doing so, she helped save many lives. Chelsea was imprisoned in 2010 and held under torturous conditions; in August 2013 she was sentenced to 35 years.
From prison Chelsea has written against the police killings of young people of colour in the US and in support of immigrant people.
