International Day of Action for Bradley Manning Saturday 27 July

Stand With Bradley Manning At This Crucial Time

The trial of Army whistleblower Bradley Manning will open again on Thursday 25 July  for the defence and prosecution to make closing arguments. The judge will rule on two defense motions to dismiss charges in the morning, after which the defense will spar with the prosecution, making its case for acquitting Bradley of ‘Aiding the Enemy’ and other major charges.

The judge will likely make her ruling by next Wednesday 31 July, which is when the 2-3 week sentencing phase of the trial is scheduled to begin.

The Bradley Manning Support Network has called for an International Day of Action on Saturday 27 July

To get involved in the UK get yourself along to one of these events.

    I plan to attend all three events; let’s link up and travel as a group between the events. Anyone interested?
    In anticipation that there will not be 2 million people attending these events, and given that 2 Million people marching on London did not stop the war (largely due to the fact that we made no attempt to repeat this demo every week until the government desisted) I intend, if I can obtain the open mike at the last event, to raise this issue and press the case for a discussion about the need for more effective action.
