Manning and Assange solidarity

This week Bradley Manning is back before a military tribunal at Ft. Meade, Maryland USA facing 23 counts, one carrying the death penalty. Whenever Bradley is dragged before the courts, we hit the streets. In London we head to the U.S. embassy. WikiLeaks' Julian Assange remains in the Ecuadorian embassy in London surrounded by British police. Solidarity activists are presently maintaining a round the clock presence outside the embassy (next to Harrods. Knightsbridge tube...drop by!).

Bradley Manning and Julian Assange are surrounded accused of exposing U.S. war crimes in Iraq. A war millions of us marched against in 2003. These anti-war resisters should not be abandoned by an anti-war movement that incited them to nonviolently resist this illegal, immoral war. Meditate on the following collateal murder footage and reflect on how you can join with others to support Brad and Julian in this their hour of need and stop these U.S. wars on the poor

A report of a solidarity vigil held last Saturday can be found here. You may also be interested in the following video in which LCWer Ciaron O'Reilly reflects on two years of solidarity with Brad and Julian (sound improves after 30 seconds).
