After more than three years of imprisonment, including nine months of torture, Nobel Peace Prize nominee Bradley Manning’s trial will finally begin June 3rd, 2013, in military courtroom at Fort Meade, Maryland. The outcome of this trial will determine whether a conscience-driven 25-year-old WikiLeaks whistle-blower spends the rest of his life in prison. Bradley believed that the American people have a right to know the truth about what our government does around the world in our name. We will send a message to the military prosecuting authority, and President Obama, that Bradley Manning is a patriot and heroic truth-teller.
On June 1st people across the nation (and the globe) will converge on Ft. Meade to stand up for the Army whistle-blower who risked everything to give the public real facts about our government’s wars in the Middle East and foreign policy worldwide.
Join us at Fort Meade on the eve of Bradley’s court martial. However, if you can’t make the trip, dozens of solidarity actions are scheduled worldwide–many local events are being sponsored by Veterans for Peace chapters. Complete list of solidarity events.
