What: Free reading of a new play on Bradley Manning’s Birthday.
Where: 45 Bleecker St (at Lafayette) Manhattan, New York
We are marking the day with a presentation of a fascinating and revealing new work, BRADASS87, comprised mainly of the actual chat logs that led to Manning’s arrest in Iraq for allegedly leaking classified information to WikiLeaks, sections from the transcripts of the ongoing pre-trial hearings, and testimony of his treatment under confinement. We think this can be a fascinating window into Bradley Manning and his actions and throw some light on the complexities of this case and on core attitudes towards freedom of information and secrecy in our society.
There will be a presentation afterwards with Chase Madar, constitutional lawyer and author of “The Passion of Bradley Manning”
