Occupy Obama Campaign Offices with Bradley Manning Supporters
On Thursday, August 16, US military veterans in Portland OR, Oakland CA, and Los Angeles CA, occupied Obama 2012 campaign offices. Six veterans and activists in Oakland, and six more in Portland, OR, were arrested Thursday night at Obama campaign offices for occupying the spaces in solidarity with accused WikiLeaks whistle-blower PFC Bradley Manning. Dozens of veterans and anti-war demonstrators coordinated a West Coast set of actions that also included protests in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and Seattle.
Now Afghans For Peace, SF Bay Iraq Veterans Against the War, and the Bradley Manning Support Network are calling for Nationwide Actions at local Obama Campaign Offices, September 6th, 2012, the day of Obama's nomination acceptance speech during the Democratic National Convention!
