Would You Get on a Bus for Bradley Manning?

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, 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 the People must send a message to the military prosecuting authority, and President Obama, that Bradley Manning is a patriot and heroic truth-teller.

Saturday, June 1st is the International Day of Action to Support Bradley Manning. The Peace Council is considering organizing a bus to Fort Meade on the eve of Bradley’s court martial to participate in a national rally and march for Bradley. We are gauging interest. Please let us know if you would get on a bus for Bradley. Fill out the form below.
