Over 40 cities around the world are set to mark the 1,000th day of WikiLeaks source Bradley Manning’s imprisonment. Manning's whistleblowing acts will be honored and his imprisonment without a speedy trial denounced this weekend in places ranging from Denver to Rome to Sydney.
Private First Class Bradley Manning has been in detention now for 1000 days since his arrest on "alleged" whistleblowing actions concerning actions taken by the US military and others in the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars. This San Diego event, along with similar events throughout the world, is intended to remind the public of Bradley Manning’s status, as a military prisoner for 1000 days now without trial. The event is being held in the Hillcrest community to raise awareness of the LGBT community and others about who Bradley Manning is and how his actions reflect both the best traditions of the US military and heroic risk-taking by a member of the LGBT community.
Additional supporting groups include the San Diego Veterans For Peace (Chapter 91), Canvas for a Cause, the International Socialist Organization and many others.
