Would you send a postcard to a prisoner for peace?

December 12, 2012

Dear students and other net surfer visiting this tiny blog,

210px-Bradley_Manning_US_ArmyWar Resisters’ International, an international pacifist network based in London, publishes a list of people imprisoned for CO/Total resistance (conscientious objection to military and civil services), Nonviolent Direct Action, making public information about war crimes, and other kind of actions related to fighting for a less violent and juster world. This is called the Prisoners for Peace campaign and it is about sending postcard/letters to people in prison.

This year there is someone who has done a lot in defense of human rights and democracy and has been imprisoned for it, and I wonder if you would send him a postcard so he knows it’s a great deal of people in the world who support him. His name is Bradley Manning. He is a soldier, and since 2010 he is in pre-trial detention in the USA. His crime, allegedly having leaked military video and documents showing evidence of US war crimes.

  1. This is the postcard I’m sending him, in case you need more ideas:

    Dear Bradley Manning,

    I’m writing to send you a warm hello and a hug.

    I’m a social activist in Spain. As a feminist, as a nonviolent activist, I strive to uproot violence and the causes of violence in this planet for I believe we can do much better. And if we can’t, as a species, I simply know I can’t take part in all that violence. My life counts, too. My small life in a big planet full of injustice and violence counts too, and it’s not about accepting violence and injustice.

    I’m glad you’re in this planet. I wish all soldiers were like you.
    Take heart.
