This included evidence of war crimes, e.g. the collateral murder video. Read more here. For the past three years here in Wales, Ireland, Scotland and England (WISE), we have been standing in solidarity with Pvt. Manning, who has Welsh and Irish roots and many family members still living in Wales. This site has been set up to encourage support for Pvt. Manning’s family, who face years of expensive trips to the US to visit their loved one in prison. Please give what you can and join us in our fundraising efforts.
