A FREE BRADLEY MANNING CALL TO ACTION: AN EVENING OF ACTIVISM AND MUSIC
What: The Justice Party of PA along with the Lehigh Valley Coffee Party and the Bradley Manning Support Network are hosting a night where music and activism meet. The event will feature local band, Real West and will be located at the Independent Space, Kutztown, PA.
Bradley Manning has been imprisoned for over three years for the leak of thousands of classified documents to the website Wikileaks. His trial, for which he is charged with aiding the enemy, began June 3rd, 2013 and if he is convicted of this charge, could land him in prison for life, or worse.
Among the documents Manning released were the Collateral Murder video that shows a U.S. Apache helicopter in Iraq gunning down civilians and even two Reuters journalists in 2007. It also includes the Afghan War Logs and the Iraq War Logs, which documented thousands of previously unreported civilian deaths by U.S. and allied soldiers, and reports of torture, abuse, and murder throughout the two wars.

The event is a call to raise awareness of Manning’s imprisonment and trial and to demand that he be pardoned and set free. A $5 donation is suggested, which will cover the cost of the event location and any excess will be donated to the Bradley Manning Defense Fund.
WHERE: The Independent Space, 19 E. Main Street, Kutztown, PA
WHEN: Saturday, June 15th, 7-9 p.m.
