Ashland Bradley Manning Vigil
Allen Hallmark, 17.12.2011 06:23
With candles in their hands and empathy for the plight of Pvt. Bradley Manning in their hearts a group of citizens, young & older, gathered at the Ashland Plaza to mark the first day of the pre-trial hearing in the court martial of young Bradley, charged with aiding and abetting the enemy by allegedly released classified documents and videos about the Iraq and Afghan wars to WikiLeaks while stationed in Iraq.
Viewed as a traitor by our government, Bradley Manning is hailed as a courageous whistle-blower by those who know that the wars in Iraq & Afghanistan were perpetrated at the behest of the 1%, the moguls of the large war-profiteering corporations.
Ours was one of many such vigils in cities around the world.
With the plaza bedecked in its holiday season finery, the scene was beautiful but the evening was quite chilly.
