Join Iraq Veterans Against the War at Ft. Meade for PFC Bradley Manning!

Thursday, November 1, 2012
Gather and vigil at 10am, press conference and speak out at noon
Fort Meade, Maryland, Main Gate

Before the Iraq Veterans Against the War convention kicks off in Baltimore MD, IVAW will be out at Ft. Meade MD in front of the main gate, showing support for accused Wikileaks whistle-blower Pfc. Bradley Manning during his pre-trial hearing at the court house on base. We will be showing support for Bradley Manning the day before the judge in the case will decide to dismiss all the charges base on lack of a speedy trial. Bradley will have been in pre-trial confinement for over two and a half years before he goes to court martial. Stand with us to oppose the unjust prosecution and support Pfc Manning!

Iraq Veterans Against the War will hold a vigil outside of the main gate beginning around 10:00am. We will hold visuals and have a strong presence there. A speakout and press conference will be held at 12:00pm noon. After lunch time (food will be provided), those who wish to enter the court room on base to witness the proceedings can while the rest will remain holding visuals at the main gate until around 3:00pm.

We will be converging on the main gate of Ft. Meade at Annapolis rd and Reece rd. There is parking right down the street at Grace Garden. See you there!

    All Are Welcome. Come join us to celebrate Veterans/ Armistice Day, really an International Peace Day on Sunday November 11th for a march and other activities.

    Forming up for the parade at noon at the corner of Beacon Street and Charles Street (just up from Cheers at the entrance to the Boston Common).

    VFP Pavilion at Faneuil Market (Samuel Adams Park) from 11 AM -4 PM. Volunteers needed to set up the pavilion and staff during the parade.

    VFP Program at Faneuil Market starts after parade finish (approximately 2:00 PM but is contingent on the finish of the official parade) with speakers, singers and bands (about 30 to 45 minutes, the shorter the better)-This year’s highlighted issues-No War On Iran- Freedom For Private Bradley Manning.

    We will be leafleting during the day at various places in the downtown Boston area (including the Armed Forces Recruiting Station on Tremont Street and other sites TBA) handing out handbills highlighting our two main issues- Iran and Bradley Manning.
    Come help set up and staff the pavilion at Faneuil Market. Help leaflet. Help swell our numbers. Bring fellow VFPers and other supporters. Report this event to your local newspapers and tell them you will be there to aid our publicity campaign. More later as our plans firm up.
