The Tree People (Tuk Pikuni) supports Bradley Manning (Free Leonard Peltier and Mumia) and will be present the Weekend of Gay Pride while holding down the occupation of Gezi Gardens at Oak and Fell streets in San Francisco. We will be continuing the support though visible means "Free Bradley Manning" and "Bradley Manning is a Hero, Gay Pride Parade Officials are a Zero". We are in no way trying to insult our two spirited brother and sisters but call out the Ridiculous and Cowardly act of the Gay pride officials on Bradley Manning.
