Why vigil on 16 March?
Bradley will appear at Fort Meade, Maryland on March 15 & 16 for a motion hearing. This is a preliminary hearing at which the date of the court martial is expected to be set and the matter of which witnesses are allowed will also be decided. Only two of the witnesses asked for by the defence alone were allowed at the first pre-trial hearing. All the prosecution witnesses were allowed. Come to the US Embassy in London to show your solidarity with Bradley and to call for his freedom.
