This speech by Gareth Peirce was first screened in London on 17 April 2011 as the keynote address at a public meeting entitled “Free Bradley Manning! End the War!
The event was held at “Giuseppe Conlon House” in London, a Catholic Worker hospitality house for destitute refugees. Giuseppe Conlon of the “Maguire 7” and his son Gerry Conlon of the “Guilford 4” became clients of Gareth Peirce after they had been tortured and framed. Giuseppe was to die in an English prison. Gerry was to serve 16 years, both were victims of an historic miscarriage of justice.
Today, Bradley Manning resides in a U.S. military prison, a victim of another miscarriage of justice. Bradley, a 24 year old U.S. Army intelligence analyst, faces decades in prison for allegedly sharing a video of a U.S. helicopter attack that killed 11 civilians and wounded two children in Baghdad, Iraq with the WikiLeaks website.

The prophets tell us who we could be,
So we hide the poor,
And kill the prophets.”
