Culmination of Bradley Manning Freedom Torch Ride

Outright Libertarians is working on a project right now that we are really excited about, the Bradley Manning Freedom Torch Parade. Some background on the project can be found here:

We are hoping to collect the resources necessary to have our cross-country biker marathon culminate at the Statue of Liberty in New York City on July 4th, so we are asking for donations to cover travel expenses for the riders. This is a rather ambitious project for Outright on our existing resources, but it has also been a tremendous growth opportunity.

There is a potential for a second contingent of travelers to leave Washington DC on the 3rd from the Cindy Sheehan Peace Tour, and if so there would be two groups converging on NYC for a grand celebration in Bradley Manning's honor for the 4th of July. This is really exciting for us and we'd like to see our plans come to fruition.

The riders are leaving San Francisco on Friday the 28th and will be traveling through next week to reach NYC in time, with stops in Salt Lake City and Denver, possibly also Indianapolis, Columbus and Pittsburgh. Virtual ceremonies in Pasadena, Phoenix, Little Rock, and possibly Nashville are also part of the festivities. But it is coming down to a last minute push to put everything together in time.

Would you be willing to support us with a contribution to help make this dream a reality?

Thank you so much,

    Here is a Facebook Event for this action!!

    Since I am not in NYC I don't know who among my friends list to invite. Could somebody local that is connected on Facebook, go on there and use the invitation feature to spread the word?
