Vigil for Bradley Manning
Please attend a vigil n solidarity with Wikileaks whistle blower Bradley Manning, who is back in court to argue that all charges be dismissed due to “unlawful pretrial punishment.”
Bradley is expected to take the stand for the first time on 11/28 or 11/29. This hearing will focus on the abuse Bradley endured in Quantico, VA. It is 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”.
When: 11/29/2012, 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
