Washington DC, Sunday May 11, 2014. Around twenty social justice activists associated with the Chelsea Manning support group rally in front of the White House in support of an unlikely presidential pardon for convicted whistleblower Chelsea Manning. On Thursday, April 10, 2014 Major General Jeffrey S. Buchanan rejected Manning’s request for clemency. The only person who can now grant clemency is the President Of The United States. The Obama White House had declared that it will not even respond to Chelsea’s request for clemency until all of her appeals are exhausted, a process which could take many years. On August 21, 2014 Chelsea Manning was sentenced to 35 years in prison for releasing secret government documents to Wikileaks.
