Bradley Manning, 23, the army private accused of sending hundreds of thousands of classified government cables to whistle-blowing website WikiLeaks will come to Fort Meade on Friday for a preliminary five-day hearing on espionage charges, for which he could face life imprisonment.

The Bradley Manning Support Network has organized demonstrations for both Friday and Saturday outside Fort Meade. The group says Saturday’s march will be coordinated with protests in over fifty other locations.

Among Manning’s supporters who will participate in the weekend’s demonstrations is Daniel Ellsberg, the man who leaked the Pentagon Papers. Ellsberg has repeatedly defended Manning’s alleged leak, and stressed that there is no substantive difference between the actions of the two whistleblowers.
