“Such deprivation of liberty does not constitute a circumscribed sanction for a specific offense, but an open-ended progressively severe measure of coercion,” Melzer, the U.N. special rapporteur, wrote of Manning’s treatment.

It does not take a U.N. expert to recognize the current conditions of Manning’s incarceration as a form of torture. It is the very definition of torture to submit a person to physical and mental suffering in an effort to force an action from them.

Coercive detention without charge is a discraceful act and undermines any pretense of a fair and democratic society.

If this was in a non US/US affiliated country the western media would be spitting flames and decrying said country as authoritarian and backwards. The strength and conviction Manning is demonstrating throughout this is immense.
