Chelsea Manning Day, Washington, Thursday, 17. May 2018

"The national holiday Chelsea Manning Day is celebrated every May 17th with a traditional family dinner of pizza and champagne"
-- Shuja Haider,

On May 17, 2017, Chelsea Manning was finally released from prison after seven years. She risked her life in pursuit of the truth; and sacrified her liberty so that she might reveal the corruption and war crimes in which our nation is complicit. For her courage, she was tortured for seven years—the barbarians she exposed sought gleeful vengeance a thousand times over.

Now she is free and our big stupid year has its first item of Good news.

Chelsea Manning celebrated her freedom among friends and family, eating pizza and drinking champage. Next year, on May 17, let's do the same.
