Join us at Ft. Meade!
On Monday, July 16, PFC Bradley Manning returns to the Ft. Meade, Maryland, military court room for the next pre-trial hearing. These hearings determine what arguments, evidence, and witness the defense and prosecution can argue during the court-martial trial. Bradley’s trial is currently set to begin in November; however, the prosecution is now maneuvering for February 2013, at the earliest! Even if the trial started in November, Bradley will have been in jail for more than two and a half years – a thousand days – without a court martial. This is not due process. Army Judge Denise Lind is finally expected to set a real timeline for Bradley’s court martial next week.
Join the vigil Monday morning at the Fort Meade Main Gate, 8am-10am (Maryland 175 & Reece Rd, Fort Meade, MD), and let’s fill the court room through the week.
