Update #4 ·

We will not accept 35 years

Today, Military judge Col. Denise Lind sentenced Private Manning to 35 years in prison.

However, this fight is not yet over! Manning's sentence and conviction will now be reviewed by Maj. General Jeffrey Buchanan, the commander of the Military District of Washington.

Even after Buchanan's review, the verdict can still be altered by the Army Court of Criminal Appeal and the Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces. [1]

This means that we still have a chance to win freedom for Manning! We will update the petition along the way and continue the fight!
