The Whistle-Blower Blues

If he'd murdered or tortured, he'd be getting a promotion and a medal.


Bradley Manning has had another week of abuse in the Quantico Marine Brig. He is being forced to be naked every night and to stand naked the next morning to get his clothes back. He is being denigrated and humiliated in an extremely punitive way. He is now in his 10th month of virtual solitary confinement.

Please join us this Sunday, the 13th, at the 5th and K Busboys and Poets, 4p.m for a fundraiser for Bradley Manning. The suggested donation is $20 and there will be a silent auction as well. There will have music and excellent speakers including Kevin Zeese, co-founder of Voters for Peace.

A week later, and a day after the a White House protest being led by four veterans groups, that Voters For Peace has endorsed, there will rally to support Bradley Manning in the Quantico/Triangle area at 2p.m., Sunday the 20th. We will gather adjacent to the intersection of Rt. 1 (Jeff Davis Hwy) and C Street. We will then march about a quarter of a mile to the Iwo Jima Memorial and deposit a bouquet of flowers honoring those killed in war. We will then, remaining completely nonviolent turn onto a Fuller Road and approach the main gates of Quantico Marine Base.

Among the speakers at the rally are Daniel Ellsberg, Col. Ann Wright, Jeff Patterson of the Bradley Manning Support Network, and David House who will join us immediately after visiting his friend Bradley at the brig.
