MAWO Emergency Protest Picket Action
THURSDAY, April 26
U.S. Consulate (1075 West Pender St. @ Thurlow St.)
Bradley Manning is the 24-year-old U.S. Army intelligence analyst imprisoned and accused of leaking over 260,000 classified United States diplomatic cables, as well as videos and documents which have become known as the Afghan War Diary and the Iraq War Logs. Published on the whistleblower site Wikileaks, these documents shed light on U.S. war crimes around the world.
The third pre-trial hearing of Bradley Manning began on Tuesday, April 24th. Bradley faces 22 charges, including “giving intelligence to the enemy through indirect means” and “aiding the enemy.” Already, the military judge has denied a defense request to dismiss all of the charges as the prosecution is intentionally withholding evidence needed to prepare Manning’s defense. The actual trial has now been tentatively scheduled from September 21st to October 12th.
From April 24th to 26th, peace-loving people from all over the world will be coming out onto the streets to expose the sham trial of Bradley Manning and to demand that he be freed immediately. Bradley Manning is a hero that should be celebrated for his courageous actions, not on trial in a U.S. military court!
