Bradley to take stand tomorrow to justify
WikiLeaks releases

Ft. Meade, MD--This Thursday, Feb. 28, from 9:30am in the courtroom at Ft. Meade, MD, Army Private First Class Bradley Manning is expected to publicly explain his reasons for releasing classified information through WikiLeaks. Read more...

International actions demonstrate
enormous public support

After spending 1,005 days in prison, Bradley Manning entered into the latest round of pre-trial hearings yesterday where Judge Denise Lind began the proceedings by denying the defense's motion to dismiss charges due to the lack of a speedy trial.
Her decision, while disappointing, exemplifies a courtroom so far unwilling to provide justice for the 25-year-old whistleblower, fueling worldwide rallies and demonstrations. This past Saturday, supporters gathered in more than 70 cities across the globe to Manning's release, suggesting the resolve of those in Bradley's corner may far outweigh his short-sighted detractors.
Lind's ruling proves once again that this case will not only be decided at Ft. Meade, but in the courtroom of public opinion, which is why the Bradley Manning Support Network is now calling for June 1 as an International Day of Action.
After more than three years of imprisonment, including nine months of torture, Nobel Peace Prize nominee Bradley Manning’s trial is finally scheduled to begin June 3, 2013, at Fort Meade, Md. The outcome of this trial will determine whether the most important whistleblower of a generation spends the rest of his life in prison.
As he made clear in his chat logs with Adrian Lamo in 2010, Bradley believed that the American people have a right to know the truth about what our government does around the world in our name. Now is the time we must send a message to the military prosecuting authority and President Obama, that Bradley Manning is a patriot and heroic truth-teller.
