BRADLEY MANNING: SOLDIER OF HUMANITY
********************************************

TUESDAY April 17
7pm
Joe's Cafe Large North Hall
1150 Commercial Dr. at William St.

Bradley Manning, a 24-year-old U.S. Army intelligence analyst, has been in U.S. prison for two years without trial, faced over 10 months of solidarity confinement, in conditions that are illegal even under U.S. military law. His crime? Bradley Manning is accused of leaking the “collateral damage” video footage showing the killing of civilians, including two Reuters journalists, by a U.S. Apache helicopter crew in Iraq. He is also charged with sharing documents known as the Afghan War Diary, the Iraq War Logs, and U.S. diplomatic cables with WikiLeaks. For the so-called “crime” of blowing the whistle on war crimes, Bradley Manning faces 22 charges, including “Aiding the enemy by indirect means,” for which a conviction could result in the death penalty or life in prison.

Across the U.S. and around the world, the campaign to Free Bradley Manning is growing. Mobilization Against War & Occupation (MAWO) here in Vancouver, Lower Mainland and across British Columbia, has taken up the campaign to Free Bradley Manning in joining the worldwide campaign that is growing every day. For more info please visit: www.bradleymanning.org

Come out to MAWO’s forum to join our launching of the campaign and to learn from leading U.S. organizers and activists about who Bradley Manning is, and why peace loving people should join the campaign to defend the rights of Bradley Manning, a courageous Soldier for Humanity.
