Support Chelsea Manning’s Legal Funds With Music

Earlier this month whistleblower and hero Chelsea Manning was taken into custody for resisting a grand jury investigation into Wikileaks. Grand juries, in the United States of America, are a strange part of an already corrupt system in which prosecutors operate behind closed doors and without a judge or defense attorney present. Historically these grand juries have been used to oppress activists and dissidents.

Chelsea issued a statement where she explains her actions:

Already many people have been working to gather funds for her basic survival costs after she was released from a wrongful, 7 year long incarceration. Some of her friends created a benefit album a while back from which all proceeds go directly to Chelsea. The album, which features artists such as Tom Morello, Graham Nash, Anti-Flag, Ryan Harvey, Taina Aisili, Talib Kweli and many more, can be heard below and purchased through Bandcamp.

Additionally there is a contribution page available where you can help Chelsea pay for her legal fees during this new battle with a broken and corrupt system.
