After three years in pre-trial detention, including nearly a year of torture at Quantico, WikiLeaks whistleblower Bradley Manning's trial is finally expected to begin on Monday 3 June at Fort Meade, Maryland, US.
There will be a mass rally at Fort Meade on Saturday 1 June, International Day of Solidarity Action. In London, there will be a solidarity demo outside the US Embassy.

Bradley Manning has claimed responsibility for the largest leak of information in US military history, a gift to the anti-war movement and to all who value truth and justice. He brought the Collateral Murder video to the world's attention (previously suppressed by the US) as well as the Afghan War Diary and Iraq War Logs, Guantanamo Files and hundreds of thousands of US diplomatic cables that provide evidence of the extent and intent of US intervention around the globe.
Bradley Manning faces possible life without parole if convicted at Court Martial on charges including 'Aiding the Enemy,' a charge that can carry the death penalty.
Bradley Manning has Welsh and Irish roots and has close family members living in Wales. Stand in solidarity with Brad on 1 June in London or wherever you are.
Blowing the whistle on war crimes is not a crime.
