In support of BRADLEY MANNING, EDWARD SNOWDEN and other courageous whistleblowers:
Thursday, June 27, 7 pm
First Unitarian Universalist Church
1187 Franklin Street (corner Geary Blvd), San Francisco
DANIEL ELLSBERG, revered whistleblower of the 1970s, will tell his own story and talk about recent American truth tellers: Edward Snowden, the intelligence analyst who recently “blew the cover” of secret US government surveillance, and Bradley Manning, the openly gay Army intelligence specialist now facing life in prison for acting upon his conscience by exposing US war crimes in Iraq and elsewhere around the world. Manning is currently a Nobel Peace prize nominee.
MICHAEL THURMAN of the Bradley Manning Support Network will speak on the logistics of the Manning Contingent at the San Francisco Gay Pride Parade and how best to organize ourselves to participate. Michael is a “Global War on Terrorism”-era Air Force veteran whose experiences with surveillance aircraft led him to oppose our nation’s wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere.
