david rovics – song for bradley manning (official video)


“Song for Bradley Manning,” is written and performed by David Rovics. Manning had been assigned in October 2009 to a unit of the ten mountain division, based near Baghdad. There he had access to the Secret Internet Protocol Router Network ( SIPRNet) used by the United States government to transmit classified information. He was arrested
after Adrian Lamo, a computer hacker, reported to the FBI that Manning had told him during online
chats in May 2010 that he had downloaded material from SIPRNet and passed it to WikiLeaks. The leaked material is said to have included 250,000 US diplomatic cables including footage of a July 2007 Bagdad airstrike; and footage of the May 2009 Granai airstrike in Afghanistan.

Bradley Manning was initially held in a maximum custody and Marine Corps Brig in Quantico, Virginia, which in effect meant solitary confinement, conditions that Amnesty International has called harsh and punitive.
