Graham Nash Video Tribute to Bradley Manning

Jack’s Liberty Underground Newsletter sent this out this morning. The images are fantastic; counter-culture heroes galore, and other great images. Note he doesn’t even feel the need to complete ‘The first casualty of war’…(is The Truth).

From Nash’s website:

A companion video for “Almost Gone” – a new song by legendary singer-songwriter Graham Nash and musician James Raymond (son of David Crosby) – is being released today in support of accused U.S. Army whistle-blower Bradley Manning.

The release is timed to Manning’s first judicial hearing scheduled for December 16th, following more than 17-months in custody, including a year in solitary confinement that Amnesty International has characterized as “harsh and punitive.”

Visually, the Almost Gone video is punctuated with bold graphics, disturbing images and harsh facts. Its release is scheduled to precede Manning’s pre-trial hearing on December 16, which is the day before his 24th birthday. The Bradley Manning Support Network has named the following day, December 17,  its International Day of Solidarity (http://events.bradleymanning.org/). PFC Manning, an Army intelligence analyst who had been stationed near Baghdad, was arrested in May 2010 under suspicion of leaking classified information, including a video showing the killing of civilians, to the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks.

More information about the video is here.
