This weekend the family of Chelsea (formerly Bradley) Manning visited Dublin to highlight her case. She is currently serving a 35 year sentence in Fort Leavenworth, Kansas for the release of documents and a video which revealed the true horrors of the war in Iraq and Afghanistan. On her way to serve in Iraq Chelsea passed through Shannon Airport a shameful reminder of Ireland's complicity in these horrors. In the video above anti-war activist Ciaron O'Reilly speaks in Temple Bar and the picture below shows Susan Manning (Chelsea's mother) in the Brian Boru pub in Phibsboro where a reception was hosted by Afri who organised the visit.
