Target: San Francisco Pride Board: http://sfpride.org/about/contact.html

Petition Background (Preamble):

Whereas Bradley Manning has “Come Out” on behalf of all of us, and is a hero the LBGTQ community is proud of;

Whereas Bradley Manning has performed a service on behalf of the 99% everywhere by exposing the truth behind the veil of secrecy surrounding the US government’s criminal wars, occupations, rendition, torture, murder, rape, and collaboration with the crimes of governments and corporations worldwide; and

Whereas San Francisco Pride Board has abused its own process for choosing a Grand Marshal as they officially confirmed Bradley Manning’s election and then unilaterally removed him. (See A Chronology )

Petition:

We the undersigned demand that the San Francisco Pride Board immediately reinstate Bradley Manning as Grand Marshal for San Francisco Pride 2013.

We urge everyone to join the Bradley Manning Contingent at Pride.
