  1. I live in Houston and I would like to know if there is a free Bradley Manning support network in Texas.

  2. I’m in California near San Francisco. Anyone form around here going? Sure would like to go. wondering where to stay while there. willing to fly or help drive, or share expenses driving.

  3. I live in Chicago and woluld like to go if possible…is there anyone going from that city??? would it be possible for me to carpool?? Is there abus going from Chicago??? Thanks for letting me know!

  4. The bus from Willimantic, CT, will actually leave at 5:30 a.m., from a parking lot within sight of the Frog Bridge. Parking is free and safe. Back around midnight.

    SOME SEATS ON THE BUS ARE FREE! Several people who paid ($54.) cannot go.

    Reserve with Viet Nam vet organizer Bill Potvin at his business phone, 860.423.1555 (leave message if necessary), or by email: [email protected].

    Bill’s business will take credit cards (not Amex) for the cost of the trip.

    The bus will show a great DVD about rally headline speaker Daniel Ellsberg, the Marine whose release of the top secret Pentagon Papers helped end the Viet Nam war.

    The bus will stop for breakfast. Bill Potvin is also providing grinders (including vegetarian) and drinks.

    We’ll have signs saying PROUD OF BRADLEY plus plenty of blank signs with markers. So you can also make your own.

    Mods, if you could correct the time in the website it would be great! The bus company notified Bill of the change yesterday evening.

    Many thanks!

    • We organized buses, and most of the buses sold out. That was because people learned about the rally and buses from being on our weekly enewsletter list, or watching the homepage of this website, or following us on Twitter, or peaking at our Facebook page, or having run into one of regional organizers. I’m sorry you missed that info.

  5. I live in Columbus OH and would like to know if I can participate for the Bradley Manning cause in my area. Or what other options do I have?
