Anohni – Obama (2016)

ANOHNI implores President Obama to free Chelsea Manning, who Obama’s administration has locked in solitary confinement for 35 years for blowing the whistle of US war crimes.

America’s number one political prisoner is a transgendered soldier
who sits in solitary confinement for revealing the US drone execution
of Reuters journalists.

“OBAMA,
I voted for you, I campaigned for you across Europe,
Like thousands f others, I beat the drum for you in the newspapers and on TV, telling European press that you were
a feminist, a kind an reasonable man, a just and fair man, that you would rescue us from the hells of the previous administration.

OBAMA, Please let Chelsea Manning out of prison.
Recognize her tremendous sacrifice, and her vulnerability.
With Trump incoming, if you leave her there
She will never see the light of day, or worse,
and you send a final message to the nation
That the Obama administration brutally punished moral courage
in these unforgiving United States.

She has suffered Enough, President Obama
She poses no threat.

The election is over.
There is no political advantage left in allowing Chelsea to perish in prison.

Have mercy on her, Obama,
friend of the trans community:
I implore you to Free Chelsea Manning.”
