Blowing the Whistle on Military Crimes: In Support of Bradley Manning and other courageous whistleblowers.

A free public forum with two speakers: DANIEL ELLSBERG, revered and iconic whistleblower of the 1970s will relate heroic stories of recent American truth tellers, including his own story and that of PFC Bradley Manning. PFC Manning is a 25 year-old, openly gay, US Army intelligence analyst facing life in prison for acting upon his conscience by exposing to the public war crimes and the truth about what our government does around the world in our name. PFC Manning is currently a Nobel Peace Prize nominee.

MICHAEL THURMAN of the Bradley Manning Support Network will speak on the logistics of the marching contingent named for Bradley Manning at the Pride Parade. Michael is a "Global War on Terrorism"-era Air Force veteran whose experiences led him to oppose our nation's wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere.
