The Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press has written to the U.S. Department of Defense, urging it to implement regulations providing for timely access to court records during the court martial of Pfc. Bradley Manning, who is accused of giving thousands of classified documents to the website WikiLeaks.
The members of the San Diego Alliance for Marriage Equality want to make a clear expression of support for Private Manning, regardless of the degree of responsibility for sharing classified information, regardless of the outcome of the so-called military court-martial, and regardless of his or her gender identity.
A rally will be held Saturday, Dec. 17, from 3-5 pm in support of the release of openly gay Bradley Manning, who was imprisoned on July 29, 2010, after being accused of releasing classified documents to WikiLeaks.
"President Museveni is 'quite intemperate' when it comes to homosexuality, but that the President will likely recognize the dangers of passing the anti-homosexuality legislation. He said First Lady Janet Museveni, who he described as a 'very extreme woman,' is ultimately behind the bill." - U.S. Ambassador Jerry Lanier
