We Still Will Not Leave Our Sister Behind- Heroic Wikileaks Whistle-Blower Chelsea Manning who has served seven years in Army stockades before being pardoned by President Obama before he left office is in the government’s cross-hairs again for refusing to testify before a federal grand jury in Virginia on the Wikileaks case. Basically to “snitch” on Julian Assange. The judge ordered her held in jail until she testifies of until the grand jury is dismissed which could be for several months up to a year.

The news that Julian Assange has been arrested by British police after years of asylum in the Ecuadorian Embassy brings home the need to call for his freedom and the stopping of the extradition proceedings between the UK and US against him.

We Will Not Leave Reality Leigh Winner Behind - Join the call of Stand with Reality, Veterans for Peace, Courage to Resist, Code Pink, About Face, Roots Action, Freedom of the Press Foundation and many other organizations for a pardon by President Trump.

Ms. Winner had been charged under the Espionage Act, a 100-year-old statute originally designed for spies and saboteurs aiding foreign governments in time of war to The Intercept, an on-line news organization.  On June 26, 2018 Ms. Winner entered a guilty plea to the espionage charge in the Federal District Court of Georgia in Augusta and on August 23, 2018 she was sentenced to sixty-three months in jail and three years of supervised probation thereafter. That leaves a presidential pardon or commutation of sentence as the only serious remedies left. For more information about the Winner case go to StandWithReality.org.

Leonard Peltier who is very sick has been in prison for over forty years charged with murder even the prosecutors are not sure who committed it when the Feds stormed Pine Ridge Reservation in the 1970s. A previous pardon appeal to President Obama before he left office in 2017 failed but we must continue to pursue this course of action. Go to Leonard Peltier.Org for details on this
