Bradlee Manning Nominated for Nobel Peace Prize

The gay solider who human rights campaigner Peter Tatchell described as a “gay hero” and a “human rights defender” and the United States Government considers a traitor Pfc. Bradley Manning has been nominated for a 2013 Noble Peace Prize.

Last week Manning pleaded guilty to 10 of the 22 charges brought against him related to the misuse of federal documents by releasing  thousands of pages of classified and confidential information  to the website Wikileaks.

On nominating Manning, the entire parliamentary group of The Movement in the Icelandic Parliament, the Pirates of the EU; representatives from the Swedish Pirate Party, the former Secretary of State in Tunisia for Sport & Youth released a statement.

It read: “These revelations have fueled democratic uprisings around the world, including a democratic revolution in Tunisia. According to journalists, his alleged actions helped motivate the democratic Arab Spring movements, shed light on secret corporate influence on the foreign and domestic policies of European nations, and most recently contributed to the Obama Administration agreeing to withdraw all US troops from the occupation in Iraq.”
