Andrew Castro: “We Demand Freedom for Bradley Manning!”

By BillyClub - Posted on 08 August 2010

A spirited rally was held in a park, on Sunday afternoon, August 8, 2010, in the town of Quantico, VA, in support of Private Bradley Manning. Currently, he is incarcerated in a prison at the Quantico Marine Base. It surrounds the town, which borders on the Potomac River. Private Manning is charged with releasing a video which showed, “the killing of civilians and journalist in Iraq,” by U.S. forces, according to a press release of one of the event’s sponsors. One of the speakers was Andrew Castro. He is a member of the ANSWER Coalition, a national Peace and Justice organization. Mr. Castro, who is from the Baltimore, MD area, said: “We demand freedom of Bradley Manning.” Medea Benjamin, co-founder of CODEPINK, served as the moderator for the rally, which was entitled: “Free Bradley Manning. ”For background on the “alleged whistleblower Bradley Manning,” see: BradleyManning.
