US Peace Memorial Foundation honors Bradley Manning with 2013 Peace Prize
US Peace Memorial Foundation. August 5, 2013
The Board of Directors of the US Peace Memorial Foundation voted unanimously to award its 2013 Peace Prize to Bradley Manning for conspicuous bravery, at the risk of his own freedom, above and beyond the call of duty.
Michael Knox, Chair of the Foundation, presented the award on July 26 at a rally at Ft. McNair, Washington, DC. The reading of the inscription was met with great applause. In his remarks, Knox thanked Manning for his courage and for all that he has sacrificed for this country and the world. The plaque was accepted by Emma Cape, Bradley Manning Support Network Campaign Organizer.
Many of Bradley Manning’s contributions are documented in the US Peace Registry (scroll down to his name). In addition to receiving the 2013 Peace Prize, the US Peace Memorial Foundation’s highest honor, Bradley Manning has also been designated as a Founding Member. He joins previous outstanding Peace Prize recipients Medea Benjamin, Noam Chomsky, Dennis Kucinich, and Cindy Sheehan.
WE NEED AN, OBVIOUS, PUBLIC PLACE, FOR ALL THE PUBLIC TO SEE THESE AWARDS ON THEIR WAY TO AND FRO.
Strike, 2013 Peace Prize on a Bradley Manning silver bullion coin.
That gets it into the public hand.
