NYC BUS for BRADLEY! Road Trip to Ft. Meade, SATURDAY June 1st
*****ATTENTION Folks who still want to go on this trip:
FROM OUR FRIENDS IN NJ:
"New Yorkers. Your buses have sold out but there are still quite a few seats on the New Brunswick, NJ bus. We leave at 9:30 am. There's a train at 7:11 am which arrives at 8:11 am. Email the Central Jersey Coalition Against Endless War at NoEndlessWar@gmail.com or call 732-967-9370. Visit the proud city of the newest Rutgers scandal. We've got it all, and bagels, too."
Calling all residents of the NYC metro area! We are organizing buses to travel to Fort Meade on June 1st, in order to attend the historic rally that will mark the start of Bradley Manning's court martial. Bradley Manning is the 3 time Nobel Peace Prize nominated whistleblower that released 1000s of US government documents to the news organization Wikileaks. These documents detailed war crimes, corruption, criminal activity and many revelations about diplomacy around the world, and the US's part in all of these events.
Because the US government refuses to recognize his incredible service to the public, Bradley is facing life in prison - and it has been ONLY through activism that he was transferred out of torturous pre-trial conditions that organizations and leaders around the world have condemned - and it will be ONLY through activism that he is given a shot at fair, non-politicized justice during his trial.
These days will be the most important of Bradley's life - and thus June 1st will be the most important day of activism for Bradley. 100,000s of citizens from nations on every continent have gotten involved somehow in this campaign. We have reached the zero hour of our mission to free this American hero. If we fill one bus, we will work to get a second, and a third, and so on.
Activists have already generously donated to sponsor NYC's first bus - therefore, a ticket for bus 1 costs 20$. Your ticket pays for your transport to and from Fort Meade, leaving from and returning to Manhattan on the same day.
We will leave Manhattan at 7:30 AM on June 1st, and arrive at Ft Meade by noon. The bus will depart Ft. Meade at 6:00 PM, and arrive home between 10 and 11 PM. Locations:
Departure & Arrival Manhattan: 1270 Broadway, between 32nd and 33rd st
Departure & Arrival Ft Meade: the intersection of Reece Rd and Rt 175 (Annapolis Rd)
****Important update! If you do not have or do not want to use a credit card to purchase a ticket, please send 30 dollars in whatever format (checks should be made out to "World Can't Wait") to the following address:

Please make sure to specify that you want a ticket for the Bradley Manning Bus on June 1st. If you leave an e-mail address, I will message you to confirm that you have a seat on the bus.
Your attendance on this epic road trip could literally change history. At the very least, it will send a signal to the US government and the world that Americans will not idly sit by in the face of war crimes, human rights violations, and the perpetuation of endless war. Join us!
