On July 27, a very dedicated group held down then corner of Ursulines and Decatur Street in New Orleans to answer that very question. This group of advocates for justice and truth, many of whom had never met until the rally, joined together to participate in an International Day of Solidarity as supporters in more than 40 cities took action for Bradley Manning.
For five hours this committed group rallied in support of whistle-blower Bradley Manning.
When it became obvious that many passer-bys did not know who Bradley Manning is, Chalkupy ensued, and soon messages were visible on the sidewalk and more people joined the rally.
This rally, which was organized by two Common Ground Relief Volunteers, brought together local social justice advocates and the delightful support of a friend from Occupy Austin.
Spontaneous street theater erupted, a megaphone was used, and information about Manning was distributed to those with questions.
Here is a Flickr set of Saturday's events.
This was a great example of the awareness a small group of committed individuals can spread.
On Friday, July 26, Manning's defense rested with the argument that Bradley was humanist whistle-blower: The Bradley Manning support network has since announced that "Judge Lind then closed the court to deliberate, telling us that she’ll notify the defense and government when she’s reached a final verdict."
Finally, please sign the petition to demand Maj. Gen. Buchanan: Drop 'Aiding the Enemy' Charges Against Manning.
