The trial of whistleblower Bradley Manning started on 3rd June in Fort Meade, US. Ever since, protests and support have never stopped inside and outside the Court. In particular, Bradley has been celebrated in countless Pride marches internationally and was awarded the Sean MacBride Peace Prize.
The U.S. government concluded its case against Bradley after providing no real evidence that he had “aided the enemy” by passing documents to WikiLeaks. In response, Bradley’s defence presented four motions to get a not guilty on most of the greater charges, but these were refused by the judge.
As the judge is expected to pronounce a verdict very shortly, the Bradley Manning Support Network is calling for an international day of action on Saturday 27 July.
So far, actions are planned in Canada, Australia, Belgium, Germany, Netherlands, UK, and dozens of major cities in USA.
Over 70 supporters packed the courtroom and overflow trailer on July 8th 2013.

Thanks to international whistleblower Bradley Manning, now we know about:
● The “collateral murder” video of a US helicopter gunship crew killing Iraqi civilians ● The officially sanctioned cover-up of rape and other torture in Iraq and Afghanistan ● The extent of drone strikes ● The US government attacks on popular government & movements in Haiti and Venezuela ● Corruption by Tunisian dictator Ben Ali, which spurred the 2011 revolution ● Israel consulting with Egypt and the Palestinian Authority before invading Gaza ● etc

Edward Snowden’s exposé of global snooping by the US has caused outrage around the world, as did the US re-routing of Bolivian President Evo Morales’ plane, especially in Latin America. The work of Wikileaks and its founder Julian Assange has been crucial in spreading Bradley Manning’s evidence of governments’ crimes and brutality, and for organizing against US persecution of Edward Snowden.
