Thursday August 16th, 5:00pm, Oscar Grant Plaza, 14th and Broadway, Oakland Ca
Stand with the most influential whistle blower of our generation! Join us in taking action against the unjust court proceedings! Put governments & corporations on trial!
Bradley Manning, a 24-year-old, openly gay, US Army intelligence analyst is facing life in prison. He is accused of sharing the following with Wikileaks: a video of the killing of civilians by a US helicopter in Iraq, the Guantanamo Files, the Afghan War Diary, the Iraq War Logs, and revealing US diplomatic cables. In short, he’s been charged with telling us the truth about controversial wars, foreign policies and corporate and government corruption and tyranny.
