Protests are expected in dozens of cities today as part of an effort to call attention to the harsh conditions faced by accused U.S. Army whistleblower Bradley Manning. Manning is expected to testify about conditions during his imprisonment at the Marine Corps brig in Quantico, Virginia, as part of a pre-trial hearing today at Fort Meade, Maryland. The testimony will be Manning’s first public comments since his arrest more than two year ago. Manning’s lawyers have argued all charges against him should be dismissed because of his "unlawful pretrial punishment," which included being held in a 6x8 ft cell for at least 23 hours a day and being banned from lying down or even leaning against the wall unless he was sleeping.
