Recent presentation by Jeff Paterson, Director of the veterans support group, Courage to Resist.

Courage to Resist

In the second clip, which is about 44 minutes in length, Jeff goes into detail about the case of Bradley Manning, who is awaiting court marshal and possibly execution for releasing classified information regarding U.S. war crimes.

Paterson also provides information about what we can do to support Bradley Manning in his future trial, possibly sometime around May 2012.

It's totes disrespectful to refer to her as Bradley Manning and with the pronoun 'his.' It's pretty abundantly clear that she is a trans woman.
