From The Bradley Manning Support Network

Dear All

THANK YOU very much for taking action this weekend and becoming a leader in the movement to free Army whistle-blower Bradley Manning! We are excited to report that 70 EVENTS (that we know of) have happened around the world this weekend, a sign that people everywhere are truly beginning to recognize how important Bradley's case is to the futures of people worldwide.

How did your event go?

- We'd like to share the extent of actions worldwide, big and small alike, with our supporters online and with the media. PLEASE REMEMBER TO E-MAIL ME (emma@bradleymanning.org) PHOTOS FROM YOUR EVENT, along with a one-paragraph description, BY MIDDAY TOMORROW if possible so we can include them in our updates. A general description of your activities and the number of people who participated is fine, but don't leave out any exciting details!

- If you were able to collect names on our petition (http://www.bradleymanning.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/Petition.1.pdf) PLEASE MAIL THEM TO OUR CENTRAL OFFICE as soon as you can. If you plan to organize future events for Bradley, I encourage you to save the contact information yourself first, so that you can communicate directly with other supporters in your area.

- If you wish to organize more events for Bradley in the future, and you'd like to be added to our international organizers' e-mail list to actively participate in ongoing discussions about strategy and actions between now and the June court martial, please let me know!

Next week I will send more information about our campaign's next steps, including launching a letter-writing campaign and call-in to target military presiding authority General Linnington, asking congresspeople to launch inquiries into the lack of accountability for Bradley's torture at Quantico, and beginning to plan for our June 1st International Day of Action, the weekend before Brad's court martial. I look forward to working with you all further!

Thank you again very much for your hard work! The growing grassroots movement to support Bradley Manning is giving this young whistle-blower a fighting chance at freedom!

In solidarity,
Emma Cape
National Organizer for the Bradley Manning Support Network (www.bradleymanning.org)
