Join The San Diego Coalition to Free Manning for a rally and candlelight vigil at 7pm at the corner of University Ave & 10th Ave in Hillcrest, SD, CA. This event will take place to show support for accused army whistleblower Pfc. Manning and the defense's motion to dismiss charges for lack of a speedy trial. The ruling will take place between February 26th and March 1st.
This date will mark the 1,000th day that this courageous political prisoner will have spent behind bars for revealing war crimes and other wrongdoing.
SAME (and other allied groups) is a signatory to an open letter calling for Bradley Manning to either receive an open, fair and speedy trial or to be released. Whistle-blowing on war crimes is not a crime!
Supporters will meet at the San Diego Civic Center AKA Occupy SD's Freedom Square (at 3rd ave and B street) at 3pm and march 6 blocks North to the 3rd Ave bridge over the I5 to place a banner for freeway traffic to see. We will then march back to Occupy San Diego to hold a rally and speak out.
On the 17th of December - his 24th birthday - Bradley Manning will have been incarcerated for 571 days.
