“Courage To Resist” by Vic Sadot is the name of the soundtrack for this Code Pink “Valentine Video to Bradley Manning”. The song was written for a demonstration on Jan 12, 2011 at Old Berkeley City Hall to support Bradley Manning, wikileaks, and to close Guantanamo prison and release all the prisoners who have already been cleared. “Courage To Resist” is the name of the organization in support of US military people who have turned against war or who have become whistle-blowers about war crimes. Holly Harwood, Coordinator of Code Pink Golden Gate, came up with the idea of a video Valentine for Bradley Manning. She requested Vic Sadot’s new studio recording of “Courage To Resist” with the wonderful viola of Eric Golub accompanying. It was recorded at Robot Envy Studio in Berkeley by owner/sound engineer Sammy Fielding on Feb 10, 2011. Many activists in the San Francisco Bay Area signed the Valentine posters for Bradley at recent events like the Code Pink march on Golden Gate bridge on Feb 14 and the Social Justice Committee of the Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalist’s “Country Joe Open Mic” on Feb 11. Their heartfelt statements in support of Bradley Manning are nicely intermixed with recent photos of people in the Bay Area taking their message to the streets. Blowing the whistle on war crimes is a duty, not a crime! Free Bradley Manning now! Prosecute the war criminals! Get involved! Contact “Courage To Resist”!
