Rocky Road to Dublin

Manning’s family and supporters converge on Dublin in Irish solidarity effort

Scroll down for event details.

Private Cheslea (Bradley) Manning’s Welsh mother, two aunts and an uncle will return to their roots and spend the next few days in Dublin, birthplace of their late father, where supporters are organising a series of events and meetings to raise awareness of Manning’s plight and of moves to help the family with the cost of Transatlantic prison visits now and (unless Manning is pardoned and released) the years ahead. £1,000 has already been given to the family from this fund towards the cost of their next visit.
