Support Bradley Manning (w/Speaker Daniel Ellsberg)
Date Wednesday January 12
Time 11:30 AM - 1:30 PM
Location Details
Berkeley Old City Hall, 2134 MLK Jr. Way
Event Type Protest
Organizer/Author
Take the street, shut down MLK!

The formal event is organized by groups such as Code Pink, Courage to Resist, and World Can't. Speaker Daniel Ellsberg will be at the protest to support Bradley Manning, and to end the wars in the Middle East. However the masses can decided to move beyond the speaking event and shut down the heart of the city if they are inspired.

During the last city council meeting of 2010, Berkeley City Council had an opportunity to demand the freedom of Bradley Manning, but the council backed out due to pressure from right-wing and soft-liberal organizations. The city was also afraid of a boycott of Berkeley businesses during the holiday season - previous "boycott Berkeley" campaigns had hurt Berkeley businesses.
