fathers, former prisoners, mothers, musicians, priests, & students. They were joined by a Swiss tourist who picked a Bradley Manning placard.

At 5.30 pm the 15 folks began to walk single file to the U.S. embassy carrying placards calling for the freedom of Bradley Manning, Julian Assange, Edward Snowden and end to the war.

The procession arrived at the U.S. embassy just before the London verdict time of 6pm. The gathering was addressed by
