Bradley Manning Verdict: Convergence at Powell and Market

WASHINGTON -  

WHAT: Bradley Manning Verdict: Convergence at Powell and Market

WHERE: Powell and Market Streets

San Francisco

WHEN: TOMORROW, Tuesday, July 30, 2013 at 5pm

San Francisco, CA… United States Army Judge Denise Lind, who is presiding over the Bradley Manning trial, will issue her verdict tomorrow, Tuesday, July 30th at 1pm EST. San Francisco supporters of openly gay whistleblower, PFC Bradley Manning, will converge at Powell and Market Streets tomorrow at 5pm to react to the judge’s ruling. A month-long sentencing process will begin following the verdict.

Judge Lind recently refused to dismiss the government’s aiding the enemy charge, which if found guilty could result in life in prison for Manning, the US Army soldier who was arrested in 2010 in Iraq on suspicion of having passed classified material to the website Wikileaks. Lind also unfairly favored prosecutors last week by allowing them to present new evidence after they had officially closed their case. Furthermore, this evidence was in the form of unsupported testimony by Manning’s former direct supervisor, who had been disciplined for making homophobic remarks toward him. Defense attorney, David Coombs, explained in his legal filings last week, “The Government has pushed this case beyond the bounds of legal propriety. If the Government meant ‘information’, it should have charged information.” www.bradleymanning.org/featured/manning-judge-alters-charges-to-assist-g...
