A Bradley Manning event with Birgitta Jonsdottir
A panel in New York City on April 5, 2013.
Editor’s Note: Alexa O’Brien has provided primary independent coverage of the pre-trial hearing, as has Kevin Gosztola. Bjrgjtta Jonsdottir is from Iceland and helped create WikiLeaks’ “Collateral Damage.” An interesting panel that includes discussion of the corporate mainstream media’s failure to cover the Bradley Manning story and larger implications for the media and the role of national security in characterizing Bradley Manning as a criminal rather than a whistleblower and not treating WikiLeaks as a legitimate journalist outlet and characterizing Julian Assange as a criminal.Here is the invitation to the panel:

Daniel Ellsberg and Michael Moore invite you to a Bradley Manning event with Birgitta Jonsdottir:
On Friday April 5th, we invite you to an evening of art and discussion to sow the seeds of resistance against illegal imperialist wars, and to discuss the present state of free speech and freedom of the press. Your presence at Judson Memorial Church would send a clear signal that we the people value truth and stand against the unbelievable lack of ethics and accountability this, and other leaks, consistently reveal.
Doors will open at 5:30 PM, for two hours of drinks, refreshments, and artwork , including stills from Collateral Murder, art prints by Molly Crabapple, and Laura Poitras’s five-minute documentary.
Then at 8 PM, we’ll move to a discussion among Birgitta, independent journalist Alexa O’Brien, FireDogLake’s Kevin Gosztola, and FAIR media critic Peter Hart, moderated by Sam Seder.
