This message was sent by Joey, a member of the San Francisco Pride Board. Please circulate and go on-line to add your comments and support on the sites listed below. This victory comes as a result of months of pressure on the SF Pride Board, which on Feb 4 voted unanimously to recognize Chelsea Manning as an Honorary Grand Marshal, and also to ban military recruiters from Pride -- a victory for Chelsea Manning and for the whole anti-war movement!



Please circulate widely and go on-line to add your comments and support.


The announcement that SF LGBT Pride has chosen to make Chelsea Manning an Honorary Grand Marshal of the Parade and Celebration this year is being attacked by commentators in online media sites. Please lend your voice of support for Chelsea and SF Pride's decision. The pro military/prosecution people are well organized and we need to show the world there are many people who support Chelsea and what she did to expose US war crimes. She put her own freedom in harms way to expose the secrets and lies of the corporate military insanity. 


Here are just a few of the sites that have reported the story and the comments. You can find more by Google searching Chelsea Manning sf pride. Please pass this on to any groups or individuals who can help.
