Linus Pauling Chapter stands with Bradley Manning

June 1 “freeway blog” action for start of Bradley’s trial.

Go to the VFP national page for this event and register NOW!

The Veterans For Peace focus for the month of June is The Bradley Manning Trial.  Bradley exposed US war crimes, and because of his honesty, he now faces a number of criminal charges and life imprisonment.

To kick off the trial, Veterans For Peace members and ally activists will come together on June 1st to Rally and March for Bradley.  The trial begins the following Monday, June 3rd.  As you may already know, board member and working group coordinator, Gerry Condon, has declared the first week of June (1st-8th) as the “8 Days a Week for Bradley.”

Since most of us are unable to attend the large rally in Fort Meade, Maryland, the VFP national board of directors and national office of Veterans For Peace encourage us to hold our own gathering in support of Bradley.

The Linus Pauling Chapter will hold a “freeway blog” on Saturday, June 1 from 3pm – 4pm (or as long as we care to stay) at the Seven Mile Lane overpass over I-5, just east of Tangent (and north of OR-34).  Here’s a map you can manipulate as you need:  http://goo.gl/maps/tjUU4

If you haven’t seen a freeway blog before, here’s what it looks like from the roadway.

Please register at the VFP national page by clicking on the image below and send us an email (leahbolger[at]comcast.net) if you would like to carpool.  We’ll leave Corvallis around 2:30pm.  If you meet us there, please park at the east end of the overpass in the large gravel area.  And please BE MINDFUL of passing traffic.  The walkway up to the overpass is somewhat narrow.
