    Shine a light for Bradley this Thursday!

Thursday, March 15th is the date of PFC Bradley Manning's next 
appearance at Ft. Meade, MD. During this motion hearing, the dates of 
Bradley's future hearings and court martial will be determined. The 
defense has requested that the court martial begin in May, while the 
prosecution is requesting an August start date. Considering that Bradley 
has already been forced to endure over 650 days of pretrial 
imprisonment, including eight months of solitary isolation, we see this 
effort to push back the date of the trial even further as yet another 
violation of his rights by a corrupt and unjust system. While Bradley 
stands in court, we will show our support by standing at the front gate 
of Ft. Meade in protest.

We call for these actions in solidarity with Sunshine Week, a national 
initiative to promote a dialogue about the importance of open government 
and freedom of information. We believe Bradley Manning is Sunshine 
Week's ultimate icon, as the actions attributed to him have shined more 
light on the inner workings of the U.S. military and state department 
than anything else in the "War on Terror" era.
