We Stand With Chelsea! Workshop at the Anarchist Bookfair Saturday 18th Oct

WORKSHOP ON SAT 18TH OCTOBER

Long time Chelsea Manning & Julian Assange supporters, Payday Men’s Network (see Refusing to Kill) and Queer Strike (see Global Womens Strike) will be at the Anarchist Bookfair, London, this Saturday, the 18th of October, hosting a workshop on how we can protect our whistleblowers and refuseniks.

Much of the focus will be on Chelsea Manning, and the session will cover the contribution she and Julian Assange of WikiLeaks have made to history, and the difference this has made to us all.

Also discussed will be the catalyst that Chelsea has been for change in San Francisco Pride.
