Update 26 March 2012: David Coombs, Bradley’s attorney, reports that Bradley Manning is back at Fort Leavenworth until the next hearing on 24-26 April, but his correspondence address remains the Virginia one given below. All mail will be re-routed.
Bradley Manning’s detention location for nearly two years has always been known, until now. The Virginia mailing address for Bradley Manning still stands as of today 25 March, so please continue to send messages of support and solidarity to Bradley there:
Commander, HHC USAG
Attn: PFC Manning
239 Sheridan Ave, Bldg 417
JBM-HH, VA 22211
but the location where Bradley is actually being held is now yet another state secret. A military spokesperson has said that this is for ‘security reasons’, with no indication of what these new ‘security reasons’ might be. Nathan Fuller of Bradley Manning Support Network reports on the situation here. He notes that
Just when major media outlets and civil liberties groups request more openness, the military decides to keep Manning’s location secret. With rallies held around the world during each of Manning’s court dates, it appears the military is increasingly nervous about protests of his imprisonment… We ended Manning’s abusive treatment at Quantico with extensive public protest. We can end his imprisonment too.
