Sit-In Held For WikiLeaks Private Outside Feinstein’s SF Home

SAN FRANCISCO (BCN) — Activists held a sit-in Sunday outside the San Francisco home of U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein to protest the treatment of a man being charged with disclosing classified information to the website WikiLeaks—and the group planned to hold a rally and news conference on the Golden Gate Bridge at noon.

<strong>KCBS’ Chris Filippi Reports:</strong>

Members of the grassroots peace and social justice movement organization CODEPINK were stationed outside Feinstein’s Lyon Street home at 9:30 a.m. to protest the “inhumane” treatment of Pfc. Bradley Manning, according to a CODEPINK release.

Manning is being held at the Marine Corps base at Quantico, Va.

CODEPINK also plans to address the continued operation of the Guantanamo Bay detention facility.
