LOCATION/TIME CHANGE: Meet at 12noon on Main St. between Howard & Folsom, San Francisco
On Sunday, June 28th, join the ANSWER Coalition in this year’s 2015 San Francisco Pride Parade! March for our heroic WikiLeaks whistle-blower Chelsea Manning and show your support for Chelsea, whistle-blowers, and government transparency. Chelsea is currently serving an outrageous 35-year sentence in federal prison for the “crime” of exposing U.S. war crimes. Meanwhile, the real criminals—Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rice, etc.—live in wealth and luxury.
In 2013, the Chelsea Manning contingent was awarded the highest honor, “The Absolutely Fabulous Overall Contingent”. That contingent was the largest non-corporate group with well over 1,000 people! And last year, Chelsea Manning was honored as an official Parade Grand Marshal! With Chelsea’s legal appeals beginning soon, she needs your support more than ever!
