VICTORY: PayPal Backs Down, Restores Access to Bradley Manning Account

Make a tax-deductible contribution for the public defense of Pfc. Bradley Manning

Pfc. Bradley Manning is in his seventh month of severe isolation at Quantico Marine Base for allegedly leaking documents to Wikileaks. After PayPal tried to freeze the account of Bradley Manning's defense fund, more than 18,000 Firedoglake activists wrote to PayPal. The company backed down and restored access to the account.

The Bradley Manning Advocacy Fund is a new public advocacy effort for Bradley Manning that will organize events, issue press releases, recruit spokespeople to speak out on Bradley’s behalf, and assemble researchers and witnesses to help with Bradley’s case.

100% of contributions to this fund will be used to pay expenses related to the public advocacy and defense of Bradley Manning. And thanks to the non-profit group Institute for Media Analysis hosting the Bradley Manning Advocacy Fund, your donation is tax-deductible. We can only accept donations from the US at this time.
