Manhattan, Kansas rally for Bradley Manning

CODEPINK, Kansas and the Manhattan Alliance for Peace and Justice together held a solidarity rally for Bradley Manning in Manhattan, Kansas on Friday, July 26. Blowing whistles, and holding signs that said, “Support Whistleblowers Support Bradley Manning,” and “Bradley Manning aided the truth and nothing but the truth,” we handed out information flyers to people going to attend the Kaw Valley Rodeo at the Riley County Fair. We had a mix of reactions from people that included some Fort Riley soldiers going to the rodeo that had never heard of Bradley Manning. And so we told them about our heroic whistleblower.

We took some pictures of course (attached).

CODEPINK Dallas, along with North Texas Veterans For Peace and the North Texas Light Brigade, did two actions this weekend.

CODEPINK Dallas, along with North Texas Veterans For Peace and the North Texas Light Brigade, did two actions this weekend.  On Friday night, July 26, we joined up with NTLB to illuminate North Texas with ”FREE BRADLEY MANNING” in bright lights.   Passersby approached us on the pedestrian bridge to ask, “Who is Bradley Manning?”  We were happy to tell them!
