Starr Forum: The Passion of Chelsea Manning: The Story behind the Wikileaks

October 9, 2013 - 5:00pm to 6:30pm
222 Memorial Drive, Cambridge

Book talk with Chase Madar and Noam Chomsky.

The astonishing leaks attributed to Chelsea (formerly Bradley) Manning are viewed from many angles, from Tunisia to Guantanamo Bay, from Foggy Bottom to Baghdad to small-town Oklahoma. Around the world, the eloquent alleged act of one young soldier forces citizens to ask themselves if they have the right to know what their government is doing.
