Brandon Toy, Throw Down Your Guns

We salute the courage of Brandon Toy who, in turn encouraged by the brave example of Edward Snowdon (and Bradley Manning), resigned in protest from ‘defense’ contracting and the US military machine after ten years. The RT interview is very interesting in the way Brandon details his journey from a self-confessed ‘true believer’ in US state propaganda to an open dissenter, and why most soldiers continue to follow orders. Good to see dissent and civil disobedience seem to be increasing within the system. Courageous people ‘talking truth to power’ at some personal risk, like Assange, Manning, Snowden, Toy need to be supported in every way against repression and persecution by the ‘democratic’ state.
