Courage to Resist and the Bradley Manning Support Network published a full-page ad in The New York Times today, the nation’s “newspaper of record.” The ad featured a bold “WE ARE BRADLEY MANNING,” with a field of names in the background, including Alice Walker, Daniel Ellsberg, Noam Chomsky, Joan Baez, Tom Morello, Shepard Fairey and Graham Nash–alongside the hundreds of donors who made this possible.

The ad states, “We are American military veterans, artists, journalists, educators, homemakers, lawyers, and citizens.  We live in red states and in blue states, in communities urban and rural.  We ask you to consider the facts, and join us in declaring: Enough is enough.  Free Bradley Manning now… We will not relent until this American hero is free.”
