 Special Thankgiving Bradley Stand-Out,

11/21/2012
5:00 pm - 6:00 pm    Pardon Bradley Manning Square-Central Square, Cambridge, Ma, Cambridge Ma

Special Thanksgiving Private Manning Stand-Out-Central Square, Cambridge, Wednesday November 21st, 5:00-6:00 PM     

Let’s Redouble Our Efforts To Free Private Bradley Manning-President Obama Pardon Bradley Manning -Make Every Town Square In America (And The World) A Bradley Manning Square From Boston To Berkeley to Berlin-Join Us In Central Square, Cambridge, Ma. For A Thanksgiving Stand-Out For Bradley- Wednesday November 21 From 5:00-6:00 PM ***********   The Private Bradley Manning case is headed toward a mid- winter trial now scheduled for February 2013. The recent news on his case has centered on the many (since last April) pre-trial motions hearings including defense motions to dismiss for lack of speedy trial (Private Manning’s pre-trial confinement is now entering 900 plus days), dismissal as a matter of freedom of speech and alleged national security issues (issues for us to know what the hell the government is doing either in front of us, or behind our backs) and dismissal based on serious allegations of torturous behavior by the military authorities extending far up the chain of command while Private Manning was detained at the Quantico Marine brig for about a year ending in April 2011. The latest news from the November 2012 pre-trail sessions is the offer by the defense to plead guilty to lesser charges (wrongful, unauthorized use of the Internet, etc.) in order to clear the deck and have the major (with a possibility of a life sentence) espionage /aiding the enemy issue solely before the court-martial judge (a single military judge, the one who has been hearing the pre-trial motions, not a lifer-stacked panel).       For the past several months there has been a weekly stand-out in Greater Boston across from the Davis Square Redline MBTA stop (renamed Bradley Manning Square for the stand-out’s duration) in Somerville on Friday afternoons but we have since July 4, 2012 changed the time and day to 4:00-5:00 PM on Wednesdays. This stand-out has, to say the least, been very sparsely attended. We need to build it up with more supporters present. This Wednesday Novemeber 21st  at 5:00 PM  in order to broaden our outreach we, in lieu of our regular Davis Square stand-out, are meeting in Central Square , Cambridge, Ma.(small park  at the corner of Massachusetts Avenue  and Prospect Street) for a special Thanksgiving stand-out for Private Manning. President Obama Pardon Private Manning Now!

We have met every Friday evening since 2006 to oppose war and promote peaceful resolution of conflicts.   We agree that "Responsible governance requires fully informed citizens who can question their leadership,"  and do not believe whistleblowers who have exposed important facts about our foreign policies, as Bradley Manning has done, should be punished with excess harshness.

USMC Recruiting Office Protest and Action for Bradley Manning!

USMC Recruiting Office Protest and Action for Bradley Manning!


11/27/2012
12:00 pm    USMC Recruiting Office, Berkeley California

In solidarity with Wikileaks whistle blower Bradley Manning undergoing pretrial hearings the same day the defense will be facing off with the military prosecution at Ft. Meade MD to argue that all charges be dismissed because of "unlawful pretrial punishment". At this extremely important hearing, Bradley's lawyer David Coombs will focus on the abuse Bradley endured in Quantico, VA. It i
s now well-known that Bradley was held for nine months in solitary confinement, in conditions that were declared by UN Chief Rapporteur on Torture Juan Mendez to be "cruel, inhuman and degrading." David Coombs will present evidence that brig psychiatrists opposed the decision to hold Bradley in solitary, and that brig commanders misled the public when they said that Bradley's treatment was for "Prevention of Injury". It was US Marine Corps officers including then-Lt General George Flynn who reportedly directed PFC Bradley Manning’s illegal pretrial confinement conditions. USMC Lieutenant General George Flynn, who was serving as the Commanding General of the Marine Corps Combat Development Command at the time, ordered Manning’s solitary confinement, arbitrary suicide restrictions and unjust and cruel treatment which amounted to torture at the Quantico Marine Brig in Virgina all in violation of Article 13 which safeguards against unlawful pretrial punishment. This is one of the defense's final chances to reduce possible sentencing, second in importance only to the court martial which begins next February 4th. Come rally with us outside the US Maine Corps officers recruiting office and demand that Bradley's mistreatment be accounted for! Speakers will include leading members of the Bradley Manning Support Network and partner organizations.

Time: 4:00pm-5:00pm Location: Military Recruiting Center 2946 Lyndale Avenue South (Lyn/Lake area) Minneapolis, MN Bring signs for the photo!!! Homemade signs are the best! Bring friends and family too!! This will be a "short" action. We hope to only be out there for less than an hour for photos and some sign-waving. Please arrive before 4:30pm so we may take pictures before it gets too dark. You are free to stay as long as you want afterwards but if you want to be in the photo, please come on time!!!! Info below on what to expect: ----- Solidarity actions encouraged! For those unable to attend the events at Ft. Meade, we are calling for solidarity actions at military recruiting office nationwide. We ask that you take photos of your group holding “We are Bradley Manning” signs, or a similarly supportive message, and then mail that to the following officials: Army Chief of Staff General Raymond Odierno President Barack Obama E-mail [email protected] to have your event listed on our worldwide roster. After the event, when mailing your photo to the above officials, please include a brief letter of explanation. For example, “We gathered on November 27, 2012 in front of the recruiting center in (city, state) to protest the mistreatment of military whistle-blower PFC Bradley Manning. Whistle-blowers play an important role in a democracy, and by revealing evidence of unpunished war crimes, as well as secret corporate influence on U.S. foreign policy,Bradley Manning acted in the interest of American citizens. We are appalled by the nine months Bradley was forced to spend in solitary confinement at Quantico, VA in addition to the fact he will have spent over 900 days in prison before receiving a trial. Please free Bradley Manning.”

First ever presentation by Bradley's attorney David Coombs


12/03/2012
12:00 am    All Souls Church Unitarian, Washington DC

On December 3, 2012, Army PFC Bradley Manning’s civilian defense lawyer David Coombs will make his first ever public appearance to provide an overview of pending defense motions before the court and other facts regarding U.S. v. Manning. Mr. Coombs is expected to focus on the unlawful pretrial punishment that PFC Manning was subjected to for nine months while at the Marine Corps Base, Quantico, Virginia – the subject of international outrage and a UN investigation. The government’s denial of Bradley Manning’s right to a speedy trial will also be before the military court. Accused military whistle-blower and Nobel Peace Prize nominee PFC Manning has been in prison for over 900 days. His court martial is currently scheduled to begin February 4, 2013.
