December 17 will mark the anniversary of many historic events: three months since the beginning of the Occupy movement; the one-year anniversary of the death of Mohamed Bouazizi, the Tunisian man whose self-immolation initiated the first of protests which became the Tunisian Revolution, and eventually cascaded into the Arab Spring; and 24 years since the birth of Bradley Manning, the army private accused of leaking classified information to Wikileaks. Manning's first hearing is scheduled for Dec 16, 586 days after his arrest, where he will face a military panel who will decide if he will go to trial.
This is a day to commemorate, celebrate, and remember this year, the year of the people. It's also a moment to stand for those who are being victimized by an unjust system, or have given their lives while fighting for a better future.
BradleyManning.org has scheduled a major protest for Dec 16-17, and every time they do so they set up a page for global protests. That page (http://events.bradleymanning.org) can be used for occupy movements to organize specific locations for protests.
Posters, a general one (http://i.imgur.com/0AIn0.jpg) that can be printed and used literally as a flyer; and another that is more towards those who sympathize with Anonymous (http://i.imgur.com/cnWsM.jpg)

We only ask that you stand with us, by marching, holding a vigil, making signs specific to the day. Anything you believe is fit.
Thank you for your consideration.
