3/18 Free Chelsea Manning and Julian Assange-Stop US Government Attack On Journalists and Whistleblowers Exposing US Government and Corporate Crimes

The jailing of whistleblower and human rights activist Chelsea Manning is a threat to all people of the United States. She is being imprisoned again because she stood up for human rights and against the war crimes of the United States. After serving 7 years in jail the US government want to punish her again. She refuses to accept the Grand Jury’s right to interrogate her about Julian Assange who the US government wants to jail. She has already been interrogated by the US government authorities and this fishing expedition is only to further the attack on her for standing up for justice and human rights.

WikiLeaks has been an important resource for the people of the United States in exposing the systemic US intervention against the peoples of the world and the role of the corporations and politicians who have been involved in these crimes. The action to imprison Chelsea Manning must be answered by people throughout the United States and the world. Also labor and the trade unions must stand up for Julian Assange and Chelsea Manning. The attack on journalists and whistleblowers is attack on all democratic rights.

San Francisco Labor Council resolution, adopted January 10, 2011 by unanimous vote
Be it resolved that the San Francisco Labor Council declares our firm opposition to the efforts of the U.S. and other governments and corporations to criminalize, financially destroy and shut down Wikileaks and to silence, jail and prosecute Julian Assange as well as Bradley Manning. Documents released by Wikileaks have exposed the criminal record of the US government in violating international agreements and committing war crimes against people throughout the world including the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Further, be it resolved that we urge affiliated unions to publicly reaffirm and defend our fundamental right to freedom of speech, freedom of the press, and the ability to freely and openly expose and criticize the illegal, corrupt and undemocratic practices of governments and corporations — in conformity with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

The Council will also send a letter to our Congressional representatives and to both US Senators to make them aware of our position and to call for them to join us in opposing the persecution of Wikileaks, Julian Assange and Bradley Manning. The Council will also request that the International Red Cross conduct an investigation into how Bradley Manning is being treated while incarcerated.

Resolution adopted by unanimous vote at the regular delegates meeting of the Labor Council, held in San Francisco, California on January 10, 2011.

Leaked Wikileaks Doc Reveals US Military Use of IMF, World Bank as “Unconventional” Weapons This “U.S. coup manual,” recently highlighted by WikiLeaks, serves as a reminder that the so-called “independence” of such financial institutions as The World Bank and IMF is an illusion and that they are among the many “financial weapons” regularly used by the U.S. government to bend countries to its will.

Julian Assange is still be hounded by the US government and the UK government. These government officials are engaged in war crimes around the world and they are terrified of Assange and WikiLeaks who have exposed their crimes. The combined attack on Assange and now Chelsea Manning must be opposed by all working people and all people of the world.
