Hundreds of people joined a rally outside Quantico, chanting "Free Bradley Manning" and holding banners that read "Caution: Whistleblower Torture Zone". Scuffles broke out when riot police tried to move demonstrators away from an intersection at the base entrance. One of the 35 people arrested was Daniel Ellsberg, a Manning supporter who leaked the so-called Pentagon Papers about the Vietnam War in 1971. The 79-year-old gave a speech at the rally and was quoted as saying: "I want Bradley Manning's courage to be contagious." A report on the Bradley Manning Support Network website said protesters had tried to march to the Iwo Jima memorial to lay a wreath, but military officers stopped them.

Wow! What was he arrested for exactly? He did not commit any crime, and as I once last checked we had the right to protest. This event should send a powerful message to all truth seekers; the fact that a man who exposed corruption is treated as such, and even in the event of a peaceful protest. How much more will we have to do to stop an oppressive government?

I thought we had these so called "freedoms" and "liberties," but it seems more like THEIR freedom and liberty to exploit others for individual gain.

As far as freedom is concerned we have dropped down to almost a third world dictatorship status. This is pitiful as long ago we were No.1....

He probably didn't apply for a protest permit lol. Geez who comes up with ordinances like that permit for a protest? Its kinda weird that you would have to apply for a permit from the gov't to protest the gov't.
