Chelsea Manning goes on hunger strike 'until my permanent incapacitation or death'


Chelsea Manning has announced her decision to go on hunger strike in the Kansas military prison where she is currently being held.
The US whistleblower is serving a 35-year sentence at Fort Leavenworth prison for leaking classified documents.
In a statement released on the Free Chelsea Manning website, Manning, who is transgender, said she will refuse treatment until she receives help for gender dysphoria which she says led her to try to kill herself in July."
