16-23 April: a week of solidarity in Cardiff

Here are some photos of what we’ve been doing in Cardiff over the past week in connection with Bradley Manning. Solidarity events continue Tuesday 24 April in Cardiff on the first day of Bradley’s next court hearing (also London and Fairford). See also our previous reports from Pembrokeshire and first night in Cardiff with Craig Murray and Guy Smallman. See also this report on indymedia.



We’ve been at the library most days talking with folk about Guy Smallman’s photos of Afghanistan. The exhibition looks great – powerful images, lovely light, in a great location in the library and attracting lots of interest from library users, including many of middle eastern origin.

We’ve had a lot of conversations about Bradley Manning too, with people who already know his story and want to discuss his mistreatment to those who’ve never heard his name before. The exhibition includes a tape recording of Bradley Manning ‘in his own words’ containing extracts from the chat logs released by Adrian Lamo.

For example: “hypothetical question: if you had free reign over classified networks for long periods of time… say, 8-9 months… and you saw incredible things, awful things… things that belonged in the public domain, and not on some server stored in a dark room in Washington DC… what would you do?”
