Supporters of Manning stood together, chanted, and shouted slogans of support for the WikiLeaks whistle blower. Manning was arrested in May 2010 in Iraq, suspected of leaking classified information on Afghanistan and Iraq to the WikiLeaks website. Manning faces a life sentence if found guilty of charges against him. Manning's alleged leak to the website is considered to be the largest security breach in US history. Protesters chanted "Free Bradley Manning!", "Exposing murder is not a crime, Bradley shouldn't be doing time!" and "Free him now not later, Bradley's a hero not a traitor!" A Veterans for Peace banner read, 'Americans have the right to know. Free Bradley Manning!' Manning's trial begins on Monday June 2, and is expected to last throughout the summer. Demonstrations and thousands of protesters from around the world have been showing their support for Manning for the last three years.
