Supporters are encouraged to attend Bradley Manning’s court martial motion hearing at Fort Meade on June 7th and 8th. Bradley’s lawyer, David Coombs, has expressed how both he and his client very much appreciate the presence of supporters in the courtroom. This hearing is scheduled for June 6-8th, beginning around 9 am daily. To attend, go to the Fort Meade Visitor Control Center at the Fort Meade Main Gate (Maryland 175 & Reece Rd, Fort Meade, MD 21113). Plan to arrive an hour before proceedings are set to begin (if you arrive late, you should still be able to get into the courtroom later in the morning).
