Bradley Manning faces serious charges & could be sentenced to life in prison for whistle-blowing on war crimes. His court-martial trial is soon entering the sentencing phase and he deserves the world's support. The SF Bay Area is proud to stand in solidarity with actions around the world on July 26 & 27. Info on actions the following day will be available at this event. Thank you!
