On Saturday 4th June, at Town Hall Theatre in Galway, there was a reading with music of Felicity Heathcote’s one-act play ”The Man With No Secrets”. The play is based on the experience of Mordechai Vanunu, who blew the whistle on Israel’s secret nuclear weapons system.
Drawing parallels between Mordechai Vanunu and Bradley Manning, the event also included film-clips from:
- the 2003 BBC documentary on the Vanunu case: “Israel’s Secret Weapon”
- “Collateral Murder” video of an attack on unarmed civilians including two Reuter journalists in Iraq in 2006 shot through the gunsight of the attacking US apache helicopter, footage allegedly conveyed to Wikileaks by Bradley Manning
- statements on Bradley Manning by President Obama and Daniel Ellsberg (the Pentagon Papers whistle-blower)
