VICTORY! PayPal Restores Access to Bradley Manning Account
after 15,000 People Sign Our Letter

Read more about our victory on this campaign.

Bradley Manning PayPal is blocking money for supporters of Bradley Manning.

The company just froze the account of the Bradley Manning Support Network, the first group to stand up for alleged Wikileaks source Pfc. Bradley Manning and which is raising funds for Manning's legal defense.

The group can no longer accept donations through PayPal, or access the money in its account. The Bradley Manning Support Network didn't do anything illegal. PayPal even admits there's no legal reason to shut down the group's account.

We need to stand with other Bradley Manning supporters. Sign your name to our letter to PayPal demanding the company restore service to the Bradley Manning Support Network.

Letter to PayPal:

According to the Bradley Manning Support Network, PayPal has frozen the account of the group that supports Pfc. Bradley Manning's legal defense.

Citizens around the world have donated to the Bradley Manning Support Network to fund the legal defense of Pfc. Manning. This grassroots activism is now hindered because of a political policy decision by PayPal to block these funds.

The Bradley Manning Support Network has not been accused of any impropriety. Your company has essentially admitted that there is no legal reason to shut down account access, and that it is simply an internal policy decision. Additionally, the organization has complied with every reasonable demand from PayPal to restore access to its account - short of the extraordinary and unnecessary step of providing PayPal direct access to its checking account.

PayPal should drop its unreasonable demands of the Bradley Manning Support Network and restore access to the group's PayPal account.
