Speakers announced for London #March20 event

We’re really pleased to announce that the following speakers will be joining us outside the US Embassy on Grosvenor Square in London this Sunday:

Peter Tatchell, human rights campaigner
Bruce Kent, Vice-President CND
Loz Kaye, Pirate Party UK
Ben Griffin, former SAS soldier and Iraq War resistor
Ciaron O’Reilly, London Catholic Worker
Naomi Colvin, UK Friends of Bradley Manning
Current pupils from Tasker Milward School in Haverfordwest

Peter Tatchell has provided us with the following statement:

“The regime to which Bradley Manning is being subjected by the US authorities amounts to torture and cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment, which is illegal under the UN Convention Against Torture and under US law. Given that Manning is a British citizen, the UK government should be demanding an end to the abuse he is suffering.”

We’re also delighted to have pupils from Bradley’s former school coming to Grosvenor Square to join us. London is a marathon journey from Pembrokeshire yet these teenage girls feel so strongly about what is happening to Bradley that they are giving up their weekend to come and address the crowd.

Please join us there. Our facebook event page is here and we’ll be meeting on Grosvenor Square at 2pm. The nearest tube stations are Marble Arch and Bond Street.
