On February 23rd, Bradley Manning will have been tortured and imprisoned for a total of 1,000 days without being given a fair trial or due process… and that’s 1,000 days TOO LONG!! So, with that in mind, we suggest you come ready to make a ruckus and spread the word to Long Beach, CA. Bring your: signs, banners, POTS & PANS, whistles, music instruments, sleeping bags, info flyers/pamphlets for outreach (printable at freebradleymanningsocal.com), musical instruments, and fists-a-pumping… and be ready for whatever and however the present group decides to make a scene and alert Long Beach that we won’t sit back and accept Bradley Manning’s ongoing incarceration. This won’t be much like Fort Manning I, let’s experiment

70 communities to rally for Army whistle-blower facing life behind bars this weekend
> bradleyBradley Manning Support Network
and Courage to Resist
February 22, 2013
This weekend, more than 70 cities worldwide are marking PFC Bradley Manning’s 1,000th day in jail without a trial. Supporters are holding rallies, marches, live performances, art installations, and other creative events to raise awareness about the young Army private. The coordinated actions span five continents, with events planned throughout the U.S., across Europe, and as far as South Korea, Portugal, Uganda, and Australia. For example, hundreds in New York City will see a theater production based on Bradley's own words, followed by a rally at Times Square.
“While criminal bankers enjoy immunity because they are ‘too big to fail,’ and now even to jail, a heroic young man faces life in prison for exposing the truth. This global outpouring of concern in protest of Bradley’s 1,000th jail of imprisonment is inspiring,” noted Jeff Paterson, Courage to Resist Project Director and Bradley Manning Support Network Steering Committee member.
Manning faces life in prison for passing classified documents to WikiLeaks, which exposed the murder of civilian journalists and disturbing insights into secretive U.S. foreign policy. In chat logs released by Wired, Manning allegedly states he hoped these releases would motivate "worldwide discussion, debate and reform."
Manning returns to court in Fort Meade, MD, for a pretrial hearing from Feb. 26—March 1, where Judge Denise Lind is expected to rule on the defense’s motion to dismiss charges for lack of a speedy trial. His court-martial trial is scheduled to start June 3, 2013, more than three years after his arrest in May 2010.
