The ANSWER Coalition supports the following demonstration initiated by the Bradley Manning Support Network and stands for Manning’s immediate release.
The text of the call to action issued by the Bradley Manning Support Network is below:
Please join us in what will likely be the last internationally coordinated show of support for Bradley before military judge Col. Denise Lind reads her final verdict–which we expect some time in August. The July 27 ”International Day of Action” coincides with the anticipated sentencing phase of Bradley’s trial. The outcome of that phase of the trial will result in Bradley receiving any outcome from time served to life in prison.
With a thousand supporters marching on Fort Meade, Bradley Manning’s trial finally began on June 3rd. We’re asking supporters to organize events in communities across the globe to do whatever possible to influence the outcome of Bradley’s trial.
The end of July also marks the third anniversary of the release of the Afghan War Diary which revealed the realities of pain and abuse suffered by many thousands in Afghanistan.
Contact campaign organizer Emma Cape at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in organizing a solidarity event or action in your community. Help us send a message to Judge Lind that millions stand with Bradley!
Let’s make it the largest set of actions yet! We are asking everyone to organize solidarity actions in their home cities. Hold signs, protest, shout out your support for Bradley! Also don’t miss our resources for organizers. For any questions about organizing events in support of Bradley Manning, please contact email@example.com.
