Assange, Manning, & Snowden: Where Would the World Be without Them? (video)

Whistle blowers Snowden, Assange, and Manning encourage people to speak up for their rights.

Whistle blowers Snowden, Assange, and Manning encourage people to speak up for their rights.

Life-size statues of three “contemporary heros” — Julian Assange, Chelsea Manning (formerly Bradley), and Edward Snowden– were unveiled in Berlin recently. What would we do without these brave whistle blowers? Think about how much we have learned as a result of the leaks they initiated.

Check out a video about the statues here. The statues are in Berlin now, but they will be going on tour– unlike these three heros– who are either in prison or living in secret and trying to avoid prosecution.

About

The Tucson Progressive: Pamela Powers Hannley

I stand on the side of Love. I believe in kindness to all creatures on Earth and the inherent self-worth of all individuals--not just people who agree with me or look like me.

Widespread economic and social injustice prompted me to become a candidate for the Arizona House, representing Legislative District 9 in the 2016 election. My platform focuses on economic reforms to grow Arizona's economy, establish a state-based public bank, fix our infrastructure, fully fund public education, growlocal small businesses and community banks, and put people back to work at good-paying jobs. I also stand for equal rights, choice, and paycheck fairness for women. I am running as a progressive and running clean.

My day job is managing editor for the American Journal of Medicine, an academic medicine journal with a worldwide circulation. In addition, my husband and I co-direct Arizonans for a New Economy, Arizona's public banking initiative. I am a member of the national board of the Public Banking Institute, and I am co-chair of the Arizona Democratic Progressive Caucus, the largest caucus of the Arizona Democratic Party.

I am a published author, photographer, videographer, clay artist, mother, nana, and wife. I have a bachelor's degree in journalism from Ohio State University and a masters in public health from the University of Arizona. I grew up in Amherst, Ohio, but I have lived in Tucson, Arizona since 1981. I am a proud member of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Tucson and the Public Relations Society of America.

My Tucson Progressive blog and Facebook page feature large doses of liberal ideas, local, state, and national politics, and random bits of humor. I also blog at Blog for Arizona and the Huffington Post.
