Limited tickets on sale today to support The Bradley Manning Support NetworkEvent to feature an intimate acoustic performance by Graham Nash

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- On Friday, October 26th , The Bradley Manning Support Network is proud to present an evening in support of Army PFC Bradley Manning, the accused WikiLeaks whistle-blower. The night will feature a discussion led by Bradley Manning Support Network organizer Emma Cape, as well as an intimate acoustic performance by legendary singer-songwriter Graham Nash

The event will be held at Church in Ocean Park (235 Hill Street, Santa Monica, California  90405) and is set to begin at 7:30pm. A limited number of tickets are available starting today at 12pm PDT for $70 in advance or $90 at the door. Donors may also purchase a special pre-performance reception with Graham Nash, which includes a show ticket, for $300. All tickets are tax-deductible contributions, minus $25 per ticket.

PFC Bradley Manning is a 24-year-old soldier and alleged source of WikiLeaks documents that reveal a pattern of unpunished war crimes in the Middle East and secret corporate influence on foreign policy around the world.  Shortly before arrest, he said, "I want people to know the truth, because without information, you cannot make informed decisions as a public."  While Bradley Manning has risen to the forefront as an icon of the anti-war and government transparency movements, and has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize as a result, he currently faces life in prison at the hands of a furious military prosecution bent on discouraging U.S. whistle-blowers.  

The Bradley Manning Support Network, a cooperative effort of organizations and activists around the world, including prominent Pentagon Papers whistle-blower Daniel Ellsberg, exists to raise legal fees and organize public support against Bradley's unduly harsh treatment.

One of music's most legendary singer-songwriters and vocal harmonists, Graham Nash has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice—with The Hollies and Crosby, Stills & Nash—and is in the Songwriters Hall of Fame.  He is also an internationally renowned photographer and digital imaging pioneer.
