Rally to Support Bradley Manning
Concerned citizens, including members of North Texas Veterans for Peace, Iraq Veterans Against the War, CodePINK Greater Dallas, and The Dallas Peace Center will join activists across the country on Tuesday, April 24, 2012 to rally in support of Bradley Manning.
To protest the charges against Bradley, for which he faces the possibility of the death penalty, participants will rally with colorful posters and signs in support of international democracy, government accountability, and the humane treatment of prisoners. Our goal is to raise awareness about the U.S. Military's attempts to suppress a whistle-blower. We stand for due process. We stand for a nation of fair and just laws. We believe the public deserves to know the truth.
