The rally was scheduled for 5:00 PM, August 16th at OGP.
At about 5:30 PM in the midst of it, the organizer for the Free Bradley Manning rally told the crowd that Scott Olsen and a small band of Vets, Occupiers and other activists had started a sit-in at the Obama campaign office a couple of blocks away. She said that we would be marching over there to support the sit-in and that the rally would continue from there.
In fifteen minutes the Obama office was both surrounded and invaded. Fifty or more people were inside, and perhaps a hundred outside, all chanting
Free Bradley Manning!
