San Francisco Pride Names Pvt. Bradley Manning Of Wikileaks Infamy As Parade Grand Marshal

San Francisco Pride did the right thing to honor Chelsea Manning's courageous action. When they voted him as Grand Marshal they also voted to forbid military recruiters presence at Pride. This also needs to be applauded. The LBGTQ movement is not the only one to honor Manning. Thousands of people have repeatedly supported her for the Peace Nobel Prize. Manning has been awarded the Sam Adams Award for integrity in Intelligence and the Sean MacBride Peace Award. From different sectors of society the message is spreading: we don't want war crimes anymore and we support those who blow the whistle on those crimes!
