Campaigners for Bradley Manning (later known as Chelsea Manning) demonstrate outside London US Embassy in the cold winter afternoon. Bradley Manning United States Army soldier who was arrested in May 2010 in Iraq on suspicion of having passed information exposing US war crimes to the whistleblower website WikiLeaks, that if so, in turn made the material widely available to the public, a great embarrassment to the US military. The protesters hold placards with the words: "Free Bradley Manning", "Blowing The Whistle On War Crimes Is Not A War Crime!" Bradley Manning a new breed of hero because the alleged disclosure of classified material may not be strategic military secrets but rather the disclosure of wrong doing and worse, possible war crimes which should not legitimately be protected by the use of classified status; indeed it correctly would be his duty to report criminal activity.
