Critical Juncture: Act for Bradley Manning
International call to action! Rally at recruiting centers and elsewhere to demand fair treatment for Bradley.
Nov. 27th - Dec. 3rd
November 27-December 2, WikiLeaks whistle-blower Bradley Manning's defense will be facing off with the military prosecution in Ft. Meade to argue that all charges should be dismissed because of "unlawful pretrial punishment". Read more about the unlawful torture and abuse here. At this extremely important hearing, Bradley's lawyer David Coombs will focus on the abuse Bradley endured in Quantico, VA, which was declared by UN Chief Rapporteur on Torture Juan Mendez to be "cruel, inhuman and degrading."
This hearing is one of the defense's final chances to reduce possible sentencing, second in importance only to the court martial which begins next February 4th. It's a crucial chance for the public to show the military and the media that they still support Bradley, by staging protests around the world and sending messages to top U.S. military officials.

"We gathered on November 27, 2012 in front of the recruiting center in (city, state) to protest the mistreatment of military whistle-blower PFC Bradley Manning. Whistle-blowers play an important role in a democracy, and by revealing evidence of unpunished war crimes, as well as secret corporate influence on U.S. foreign policy, Bradley Manning acted in the interest of American citizens. We are appalled by the nine months Bradley was forced to spend in solitary confinement at Quantico, VA in addition to the fact he will have spent over 900 days in prison before receiving a trial. Please free Bradley Manning."
