After 3 years in prison (during his first year of incarceration the conditions Bradley was kept in amounted to torture and were condemned by the UN’s special rapporteur on torture, Juan Mendez), WikiLeaks whistleblower finally comes to trial on Monday (3 June).

In any sane society, Bradley’s revelations about the misdeeds of the US military should make him a hero – and indeed, he is a hero to socialists and anti-war activists – but the US state wants to keep him incarcerated for the rest of his life (and some nasty pieces of work want him to face the death penalty).

The following article, written by Dylan Murphy (a revolutionary socialist friend of mine) explores the issues: http://www.globalresearch.ca/obamas-war-on-whistle-blowers-the-trial-of-bradley-manning/5337212
