Dear Chelsea Manning,
The courage and integrity you showed in exposing the moral depredations of the U.S. Government is an inspiration to political radicals everywhere. Your imprisonment is a grave injustice. It represents a crime against basic human decency. The genuine criminals run amok while you are confined to a cage. This inversion of justice demonstrates the moral bankruptcy of our existing social order.
The signatories to this letter are anarchist, libertarian, liberal, socialist, Marxist, and left-libertarian sympathizers. No matter the ideological differences; they all stand behind you. A broad front of support exists. Please don’t hesitate to write back. It would be wonderful to hear from you.

“It has already been said that you face great injustice in retalliation for your challenge to the injustices perpretrated by the United States, so I just want to send a little bit of love. You are an incredible personal inspiration to me — as a human being, as an anarchist, and as a trans woman. There are not many positive stories about trans people, yet here is one of outright heroism in the face of authoritarian oppression — and to top it off, it’s a true story. I will not easily forget this story; I hope you don’t forget how many supporters you have here on the outside. Thank you.”

“Stay strong Chelsea. You did nothing wrong and have nothing to apologize for. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise”
