Events are planned worldwide for this weekend in support of army whistle-blower Bradley Manning. The following week a judge may rule on whether to dismiss Bradley’s charges due to speedy trial violations

Events planned across the U.S. and internationally will mark WikiLeaks whistle-blower Bradley Manning’s 1000th day in prison without trial.  They include protests, vigils, hip-hop performances, concerts, art and theater.  Bradley’s trial, which threatens a truth-chilling life sentence, is now expected to start on June 3, 100 days after our Feb 23 International Day of Action.  There has never been a more important time to broadcast our message of support for exposing war crimes, international justice, and people’s right to know what the government does in our name.

  1. At this time more than at any other time we have to support our whistleblowers, they are today’s heroes. Without their courage and commitment we would be still ‘in the dark’. It’s not whistleblowers who are the criminals, but the shadowy figures and their minions, ruining lives. From my heart I thank all whistleblowers who are trying to change this corrupt and evil system we are enslaved to.
