We Petition the Obama Administration to:

To Stop the Electric Shock Therapy to treat disabled teens and adults at Judge Rotenberg Center as Directed by the FDA.

The Judge Rotenberg Center is a controversial treatment Center in Mass that uses a form of electric shock in order to discipline developmentally disabled teens and adults in its care _ ala B.F. Skinner and rats from the 1960′s. The FDA directed JRC to stop this , yet they ignore the rule.

Bradley Manning Being Moved to Fort Leavenworth, Kansas

In Bradley Manning, Manning, News, WikiLeaks on April 19, 2011 at 11:08 PM

After increasing international outcry over the alleged treatment of WikiLeaks suspect Bradley Manning, the Pentagon is transferring him to a medium security facility at Forth Leavenworth, Kansas.

Manning’s move will limit access to his attorney, family, and friends, and does not guarantee better treatment.

This most likely was done to cover up his inhumane conditions at Quantico Bay, with the recent pressure by the U.N. and others demanding a visit with Manning.

Pfc. Bradley Manning has been transferred out of Quantico, where he spent the last nine months in solitary confinement, to the prison at Fort Leavenworth in Kansas. The Pentagon claims the move has nothing to do with the international criticism of Manning’s treatment but rather is a matter of policy, as Quantico is meant for short pre-trial stays, and Fort Leavenworth, is more suitable for Manning’s continued long stay, as he waits for trial. Kevin Zeese, co-founder of VotersforPeace.us weighs in.

Firedoglake.com‘s Jane Hamsher says that President Obama needs to explain inconsistencies in statements about Pfc. Bradley Manning’s treatment.

After being “stonewalled” in attempts to investigate PFC. Bradley Manning’s confinement conditions, Rep. Kucinich says of the Department of Defense, “I don’t believe anything they say when it comes to Bradley Manning.”

Dylan Ratigan discusses the recent moving of Bradley Manning with former State Department Spokesperson P.J. Crowley and Firedoglake‘s Jane Hamsher.

A letter has been released with the signatures of more than 250 of the most eminent US legal scholars including Obama’s old law professor Laurence Tribe, to protest the administration’s treatment of Bradley Manning, charged with leaking documents to WikiLeaks. It details the inhumane conditions of Manning’s detention and takes a personal jab at Obama. This just in time for the US report released on human rights violations around the world, to which China fired back, mentioning Wikileaks. Kevin Zeese, co-founder of VotersforPeace.us weighs in.

U.K. Gov. Discuss Treatment of Bradley Manning

In Bradley Manning, Manning, WikiLeaks on April 5, 2011 at 11:54 PM

UK Friends of Bradley Manning:

At just after 10pm this evening (Monday) Ann Clwyd MP addressed the House of Commons on the subject of ‘The Treatment of Bradley Manning’.  We would like to take this opportunity to thank Ann for her continued support and tenacity, which has brought frankly amazing results this evening.

To summarise – the British Government has tonight recognised that Bradley Manning is a citizen of the United Kingdom. His plight is of wide concern in the UK, as evidenced by over thirty MPs conveying their constituents’ concerns onwards to the Foreign Office – and, by the way, all those reading this who did write to their MP should feel very proud of themselves right now.

The Government has also revealed that representations about Bradley’s treatment have been made on a diplomatic level and that they will be again as a result of tonight’s debate. Not only this, but Parliament has been assured that a request for consular access from the family will be “looked at” should one be made. Tonight’s events have been extraordinarily positive and we trust that developments on this latter point will emerge in short order.

The Bradley Manning Support Network have just issued a press release praising the latest British developments:

“We welcome the support of the MPs, who join Amnesty International and activists worldwide in urging the U.S. to end this inhumane pretrial punishment,” said Jeff Paterson, steering committee member of the Bradley Manning Support Network and project director of Courage to Resist. “Thirty-seven British parliamentarians have shown their commitment to justice and a fair trial,” said steering committee member Mike Gogulski. “We hope to see twice as many American legislators respond with a similar motion.”
