Let's get out as many people as we can to this rally! ------ Background Info: We think President Obama can bring change on this issue, but first he needs to hear loud and clear from veterans and civilians across the country that the American people want amends for the unlawful torture of Bradley Manning, and believe he should be freed. We want to overwhelm Obama campaign offices with messages of support for Bradley from coast to coast! Forward and spread the word! Free Bradley Manning!

Bradley Manning supporters will gather at his campaign offices across the country to protest the administration's inhumane treatment and secretive prosecution of the accused WikiLeaks whistleblower.We have to seize upon the media spotlight on the Democratic National Convention and President Obama's nomination in Charlotte to continue to raise America's awareness of Bradley and the administration's unparalleled war on whistleblowers.RSVP to your nearest Bradley Manning protest on Sept. 6th at Obama 2012 campaign offices nationwide.-- OR -- Donate $10+ to help us run Facebook ads recruiting Manning supporters to the protests.Kevin Gosztola will arrive at the DNC to cover events and demonstrations just after covering Bradley's pretrial hearing at Ft. Meade this past week.Organized by the Bradley Manning Support Network, Afghans For Peace and SF Bay Iraq Veterans Against the War, this protest aims to see demonstrations at Obama 2012 campaign offices nationwide as the president takes the stage in Charlotte to accept his party's nomination.President Obama has tried to keep a tight lid on Bradley Manning's situation over the last few years of his administration. The immense government secrecy surrounding the investigation of Manning, WikiLeaks and their supporters -- combined with the mainstream media's non-adversarial relationship with the institutions they purport to keep in check -- has left the American public largely in the dark on the subject.But our efforts have already succeeded in getting more journalists involved in covering this story, and with the court martial expected sometime in January, we need to continue to build momentum behind this trial. Your support of this protest at Obama campaign offices across the country will draw attention to Bradley Manning just as the president is making his case for re-election.Thank you for your support, from attending protests, to signing petitions, to calling government officials and contributing to our coverage. We couldn't do this without you.

At Cedar Center our office will be at street level and have easy accessibility. We will have a larger office for less rent. There will be access to a meeting area that holds up to a hundred, and a commercial kitchen for fundraisers and potlucks. Best of all, our move helps to empower all those great community action groups that used to meet at Walker Church but will now meet at Cedar Center. We look forward to working more in coalition with them. Watch for more info on our open house event. Email address, phone and fax numbers remain the same. Effective as of Saturday, September 1, WAMM's new address will be: WOMEN AGAINST MILITARY MADNESS 4200 Cedar Avenue South, Suite 3A Minneapolis, MN 55407 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Shove Trove
