Think Inc. is excited to announce the first visit to New Zealand by the American activist, politician, former US Army Soldier and now court-martialled whistle-blower, Chelsea Manning.

Found guilty of espionage and theft and sentenced to 35 years in prison, Manning’s life has been nothing short of extraordinary. Set to discuss her time in prison, transgender issues, privacy, and Wikileaks, An Evening With Chelsea Manning will offer a glimpse inside the mind of one of the most controversial figures of the 21st Century.

Serving as a U.S. Army intelligence analyst, Manning was found guilty of espionage and theft and sentenced to 35 years in prison. An advocate for transparency of the American government, Manning had her sentence reduced by President Barack Obama in May 2017. Since her imprisonment, Manning has received numerous awards for her role in the leaks and has established herself as a poster child for both whistle-blowers and transgender rights.

Named by the Foreign Press as one of 2017’s Global Thinkers “for forcing the United States to question who is a traitor and who is a hero” and blurring the line between United States hero and turncoat, it is with an insatiable thirst for information that we bring Chelsea Manning to New Zealand.

    Ahhh someone who hates Trump, someone from the left..all good so far, two ticks! someone who is also a minority, transgender, tick! (A Trifecta for the left)

    Ohhh my… they can tour and have debates anywhere they want as they are speaking from the left side of politics and welcome.
    Now someone from a right perspective and speaks from a right side of politics…ohh dear, you can’t speak in NZ I’m afraid, or any western country it seems, and if you try the left will demonstrate and disrupt your debate and threaten violence of course. (Antifa)

    The left in a nutshell!

      “Ohhh my… they can tour and have debates anywhere they want as they are speaking from the left side of politics and welcome.”

      The difference is that Ms Manning doesn’t spew vile hate speech. No one will shy away from a contest of ideas. But hate speech is not so welcome as its more about vilification than ideas.

      Do you understand that im-right? Or are you deliberately trying to validate hate speech by pointing elsewhere??

      Well at $60 a ticket, I think you will find this is for the devotees of liberalism, and not the ‘left’ I’m right. No one I know on the ‘left’ could afford that much money on a speech.

      And anyway the ‘left’ is about removing capitalism and universal ownership of property. By your definition I’m Right most of the republicans I know would be ‘left’, and they love capitalism and private ownership.

        “No one I know on the ‘left’ could afford that much money on a speech.”

        Never met a Green or inner city Labour voter obviously.

    Manning, Snowdon and Assange should be offered political asylum in New Zealand, then we could get the leader of the Internet party (Suzie Dawson) back from exile in Russia, then we would be half way back to Society we claim to be, followed closely by making the GCSB and SISS officials and spys walk the plank into the nuked lake in Mururoa atoll, some start a crowd fund for this ill donate first.

    • im right says:

      “Manning, Snowdon and Assange should be offered political asylum in New Zealand”…ummmm, weren’t you against Brash and the Canadian duo for speaking in NZ? but quite happy for the three you mention to be granted asylum and live in NZ.

      Why? what is your reasoning for these 3 to live in NZ but you don’t want anyone else, like the Canadian pair, even talking in NZ never mind living here! Is it because they do not sing from your leftist hymn sheet?

      • Sam Sam says:

        Because Manning, Snowden and Assange are all being implicated in Russia-Gate when the United States own FBI investigators said they had nothing to do with it.

      • Rickoshay says:

        Actually i criticized them for their views on immigration, in particular the voyage bye the female of the two to intercept refugees from Africa in a luxury yacht and turn them back, im against dehumanization in all forms and ill happily turn up and punch anyone in the face who thinks otherwise, see im not a peacenick and Violence is the only thing these fascists understand. See WW2,
        My reasons are id personally like to see a truthfully informed public in this country not a bunch of mind-washed sheep, like you Mr im White so in the words of the Mortal bard, FUK YOU spokesman for the rich white privileged class afraid of TRUTH, do some research before your mouth runs away with your teeth

        My flag anit Red sucker its Black

    • Rickoshay says:
