Bradley Manning Plaza (formerly Justin Herman Plaza)
Market and Steuart Streets, San Francisco, CA

Dear Friend, please join us in San Francisco this Saturday, December
17th, to march and rally against war and in support of Bradley Manning
on his 24th birthday. This event is called for by Occupy SF, Courage
to Resist, Iraq Veterans Against the War & Veterans for Peace.

Coinciding with the Bradley Manning pretrial hearing at Ft. Meade MD,
the three month anniversary of the Occupy movement and one year since
the self-immolation of Mohamed Bouazizi in Tunisia which launched the
Arab Spring.

Bradley Manning, a openly gay US Army Intelligence analyst, is facing
life in prison. He is accused of sharing the following with WikiLeaks:
a video of the killing of civilians by a US helicopter in Iraq, and
revealing Us diplomatic cables. In short, he's been charged with
telling us the truth about controversial wars, foreign policies and
corporate and government corruption and tyranny.

The United States Army scheduled an Article 32 pretrial hearing for
PFC Bradley Manning which will commence this Friday December 16 at
Fort Meade, Maryland. This will be PFC Manning's first appearance
before a court and the first time he will face his accusers after 17
months in confinement. Supporters will be present outside Fort Meade
when he arrives on December 16th, and as part of a day of action on
his 24th birthday December 17th.

Please join Occupy SF in a solidarity rally and march in San
Francisco, CA this Saturday at 3 pm.

Solidarity with Bradley Manning, the Arab World & the 99%!
