Just seven days after her release, heroic transgender activist and military whistleblower Chelsea Manning was jailed again on May 15 in Virginia for refusing to testify before a second grand jury in the WikiLeaks case. Manning could be jailed for up to 18 months. The judge also imposed Draconian fines for every day past 30 that she refuses to testify.
Manning declared, “I would rather starve to death than change my principles.” The government knows she will not cooperate with their biased grand jury. There is no reason to keep her in jail, except as continued punishment for daring to expose U.S. war crimes.
