Hi there,

Democracy Now is committed to bringing you the stories and perspectives you won't hear anywhere else, from the peace activists demanding an end to war to Indigenous leaders fighting to stop fossil fuel extraction and save the planet. Our independent reporting is only possible because we’re funded by you—not by the weapons manufacturers when we cover war or gun violence, not by the oil, gas, coal, or nuclear companies when we cover the climate crisis. Can you donate $10 today to keep us going strong? Every dollar makes a difference. Right now a generous donor will DOUBLE your donation, making it twice as valuable to Democracy Now! Please do your part today, and thank you so much.

Bradley Manning Sentenced to 35 Years In Prison

Web ExclusiveAugust 21, 2013

Army Pfc. Bradley Manning has been sentenced to 35 years in prison for leaking classified information to Wikileaks. Manning faced a maximum of 90 years in prison after his conviction last month on charges of espionage, theft and fraud. Manning’s sentence will automatically go the Army Court of Criminal Appeals, where he can seek a reduction of his prison term. Manning has already served 1,293 days in prison since his arrest in May 2010. That time will be subtracted from the sentence.

Tune in Thursday: Democracy Now! airs Alexa O’Brien’s exclusive interview with Bradley Manning’s attorney David Coombs.
