Protest Bradley Manning’s 1,000th day in prison!
When: Saturday, February 23rd 5:30pm to 6:30pm
Where: Tempe, Arizona at the corner of Mill and University
On February 23rd Bradley Manning will have been imprisoned 1000 days without trial. In January the Judge has once again postponed Manning’s trial to June 2013. Bradley has been denied his right to a speedy trial. All soldiers have the right to a speedy trial under the Uniform Code of Military Justice and the Constitution.
For following his conscience and standing up for Americans’ right to know what our government is doing with our tax dollars, young whistle-blower Bradley Manning has spent three birthdays in prison. In addition to aggressively persecuting Bradley with the Espionage Act and an egregious “aiding the enemy” charge, the military subjected him to unlawful pretrial punishment and has denied him his Constitutionally mandated right to a speedy trial. Bradley’s pretrial treatment has been wholly un-American. It’s up to us as fellow citizens to see that our Constitutional rights are upheld and to ensure that the military isn’t given a free pass for their mistreatment of Bradley.
Enough is enough. Join this International Day of Action and stand up for the heroic whistle-blower. Demonstrate. Let’s make some noise!
When: 02/23/2013, 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
