Events for Chelsea’s Birthday: Two in London
Payday Mens’ Network & Queer Strike and the Solidarity Collective call us all to mark Chelsea’s 27th Birthday on Weds 17th December, her fifth birthday spent in prison. There will be vigils and stand outs in a number of cities across the world, with two in London (see below).
17th Dec is also the 4th anniversary of the start of the Tunisian Revolution, which began the Arab Spring, and which Chelsea Manning’s releases to WikiLeaks helped to trigger. And, as we take in the horrors of the long awaited Senate Report on CIA Torture which was finally released on Tuesday, we salute Chelsea for exposing torture, and remember that she, too, was subjected to it.
In London, two events have been announced:
(1) Silent Vigil on the steps of St. Martin-in-the-Fields from 2.30 – 4.00pm organised by Payday & Queer Strike.
