Icelandic MP Birgitta Jónsdóttir

On April 3rd, Icelandic Parliamentarian, activist WikiLeaks contributor and “poetician” Birgitta Jonsdottir is making her first visit to the United States since the release of the “Collateral Murder” video. This video is one of the most graphic and devastating pieces of journalism from the war in Iraq. Bradley Manning, who has now been in jail for over 1000 days without trial, leaked this video to raise awareness.

Schedule of other events for Birgitta’s upcoming visit:

– Thursday April 4th 5pm Yippie 9 Bleecker St, NYC

– Thursday, April 4th 7pm Yeslabs Hemispheric Institute 20 Cooper Square, NYC

– Sunday April 7th 4-6pm Culture Project 45 Bleecker St, NYC

Other informal gatherings, a press conference and discussions are planned for Birgitta’s visit – she will be in NYC from April 3rd through the 8th.

NYC

Panel Event: To Private Manning, Thank You

Please join us at Judson Memorial Church, 55 Washington Sq. South, NYC, on Friday April 5th, for discussion and artwork about Bradley Manning and the important revelations he courageously brought forward.

The event is free, however there is an art print auction (of the image above) to raise money for the Bradley Manning Defense Fund.

Pentagon Papers whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg and filmmaker Michael Moore invite you.

On Friday April 5th, we invite you to an evening of art and discussion to sow the seeds of resistance against illegal imperialist wars, and to discuss the present state of free speech and freedom of the press. Your presence at Judson Memorial Church would send a clear signal that we the people value truth and stand against the unbelievable lack of ethics and accountability this, and other leaks, consistently reveal.

Doors will open at 5:30 PM, for two hours of drinks, refreshments, and artwork , including stills from Collateral Murder, art prints by Molly Crabapple, and Laura Poitras’s five-minute documentary.

Then at 8 PM, we’ll move to a discussion among Birgitta, independent journalist Alexa O’Brien, FireDogLake’s Kevin Gosztola, and FAIR media critic Peter Hart, moderated by Sam Seder.

See more information about their discussion here, and see how to bid on Molly Crabapple’s art prints of Bradley Manning here.

Birgitta and comrades will be speaking in order to raise awareness about Bradley and raise funds for his defense. Along with helping Bradley we would like to help the families in Iraq effected by this war crime, and Ethan McCord the soldier on the scene in the video who helped the injured children – he now has severe PTSD. In interest of sparking discussion and more shifts in awareness levels printed stills from the video will be on exhibit for the very first time.

Please come stand with Birgitta Jonsdottir and support hero Bradley Manning and the ethics and values he so clearly embodies.
