RT News: Canada blocks Chelsea Manning visit, citing ‘treason’

“Manning is not a felon. She was found to have disciplinary violations in the military justice system--of disclosing info to the press, only.” “Constitution states that all federal felonies must proceed by way of a grand jury indictment. Manning was never indicted by a grand jury.” — @JulianAssange on Twitter

We’re citizens, not subjects. We have the right to criticize government without fear | Chelsea E Manning

After the establishment of the National Security Division of the Department of Justice in 2006, there have been more national security and criminal investigations into journalists and prosecutions of their sources than at any other time in the nation’s memory. Eight people have been charged under provisions of the Espionage Act of 1917 for giving documents and information to the media by this administration alone – including me, former CIA officers Jeffrey Sterling and John Kiriakou, and the former Department of State analyst Stephen Jin-Woo Kim.

The roots of this crackdown seem to have begun before the administration took office: Steven Rose and Keith Weissman were prosecuted for sharing information about classified foreign policy issues to members of the media, analysts, and officials of a foreign nation, though neither man worked for the government or had a security clearance. The lawyers who prosecuted Rose and Weissman successfully established their broad interpretation of the Espionage Act before Judge TS Ellis III; though he ruled in their favor, he also warned that “the time is ripe for Congress to engage in a thorough review and revision of [the Espionage Act of 1917] to ensure that they reflect ... contemporary views about the appropriate balance between our nation’s security and our citizens’ ability to engage in public debate about the United States’ conduct in the society of nations.

Chelsea Manning wrote an op-ed about the need for more freedom of information and transparency in the US. She also authored a bill which seeks to reform the use of the Espionage Act in prosecuting journalists and whistleblowers.

Whistleblowing Manning begins tweeting from prison (RT USA, Apr. 3 2015)

“Chelsea Manning, formerly Bradley, is using the handle @xychelsea.

Born Bradley Edward Manning, the Army private came out as a transgender woman in April 2013, and legally changed her name to ‘Chelsea Elizabeth Manning.’ The Army court of criminal appeals recently ruled the Army was obligated to refer to Manning as a woman.

Manning had nearly 13,000 followers by Friday afternoon.

‘Given the conditions of her custody – which do not extend to internet access – she will dictate comments by phone to supporters who will then post on her behalf,’ announced the Guardian. Manning has written several columns for the UK paper since last month.”
