Menlo Park protest

Caption with photo in print edition: Shaunn Cartwright and Joseph Rosas protested in Menlo Park on Thursday, Sept. 6, over the imprisonment of U.S. Army Private Bradley Manning, who is being held at Fort Leavenworth federal prison in Kansas on accusations of turning over thousands of secret government documents to the whistleblower website WikiLeaks in 2010.

About 25 people from Occupy San Jose and Peninsula Direct Action showed up for the two-hour protest at 350 El Camino Real in Menlo Park.

The office there is not affiliated with the Democratic Party but established by and for volunteers who support Democratic Party causes, office manager Mike Aydelott told the Almanac.

A spokesman for the Bradley Manning Support Network said similar protests had been planned for "dozens of cities across the U.S." on the last day of the Democratic National Convention.
