DEC 22 – Graham Nash and the son of David Crosby, James Raymond, have released the song, "Almost Gone" and companion video in support of whistleblower Bradley Manning. On Nash's website it says:
"The release is timed to Manning's first judicial hearing scheduled for December 16th, following more than 17-months in custody, including a year in solitary confinement that Amnesty International has characterized as 'harsh and punitive.'"
"Visually, the Almost Gone video is punctuated with bold graphics, disturbing images and harsh facts. Its release is scheduled to precede Manning's pre-trial hearing on December 16, which is the day before his 24th birthday. "Bradley Manning is a hero to me," [Nash] sings, acknowledging Manning's role in making public videos and documents that shed light on such as issues as the true number and cause of civilian casualties in Iraq, human rights abuses by U.S.-funded contractors and foreign militaries, and the role that spying and bribes play in international diplomacy."
