The group Courage to Resist has a post up from the Bradley Manning Support Network about a singing protest at President Obama's fundraiser at the St. Regis Hotel in San Francisco. Manning, a U.S. Army intelligence specialist, is currently incarcerated at Fort Leavenworth for allegedly releasing classified documents to the website WikiLeaks.
A flash mob of 10 activists protesting the government's treatment of Private Bradley Manning serenaded President Obama at a private fundraiser at the posh St. Regis Hotel in San Francisco Thursday morning.
The president was in the middle of a speech talking about "how inspired he was by the creativity of the organizers supporting him in the 2008 election," said Emma Cape, 24, one of the protesters present, when Naomi Pitcairn, leader of the Bay Area-based Fresh Juice Party, stood up and offered to sing the president a song.
Here's a video focusing on the protesters and the audience, plus Obama's reaction to the disruption afterward.
And here's one showing a long shot of the President's laughing reaction during the song.
