Free Bradley Manning Rally in Leavenworth June 4th - pictures
Advertisements [?]
Edited on Sun Jun-05-11 11:26 AM by proud2BlibKansan
The day began with a rally at a local park overlooking the MO River.

There were lots of wonderful signs. This was my favorite:

There was a film crew from a Japanese TV network recording the events.

This is Bradley Manning's dad being interviewed by a local reporter. He had gone up to the base with the Japanese film crew early Sat morning and was detained for 45 minutes.

Code Pink being interviewed.

Cops were EVERYWHERE. This helicopter flew overhead about every 15 minutes all day long.

A group of activists who had been at Camp Casey with Cindy Sheehan gathered for a picture.

Leaving the park for the march to the base.

On the way we passed by a Sonic and the employees took pictures. One of them told us it was the first protest he had ever seen.

Approaching the base.

At the gate.

Across the street.

Counter protesters. Note the police protection. No cops ever joined our group or stood by us or walked with us. But they were there to protect the group across the street.

This was the strangest thing I saw all day. A guy dressed like a knight in armor was escorted up the street by cops and stood with the counter protesters. He had a sign on his shield that said FRY BRADLEY MANNING. The funny part is that in the 95 degree heat, he was the one who was going to fry.

Standing in front of the base.
