Stephanie Tang of World Can't Wait and six other protesters, including war veterans Scott Olsen and Joshua Shepherd, demanded justice for Bradley Manning, the Army private accused of leaking state secrets to WikiLeaks. The action coincided with other rallies in Los Angleles and Portland, Oregon.http://www.flickr.com/photos/ari/7799060656/in/photostream/
"While today much of the focus will be on the decision of the Ecuadorian government, it is just as important that we remember Bradley Manning has been detained without trial for over 800 days." - Julian Assange
