Protesters supporting WikiLeaks suspect Bradley Manning managed to infiltrate a private fundraiser for President Obama on Thursday morning in San Francisco, interrupting his remarks with a song.
As Obama was speaking at the $5,000-a-plate breakfast fundraiser, a California activist named Naomi Pitcairn, sitting at one of the tables (above), reportedly began humming and singing a modified version of the song “Where’s Our Change?”, decrying Manning’s treatment in prison. Pitcairn removed her blazer and shirt to reveal a t-shirt with a picture of the young Army intelligence analyst who is suspected of leaking a massive cache of classified and sensitive documents to the secret-spilling site WikiLeaks.
As the rest of the group at Pircairn’s table joined in with her song, they held up signs that read “Free Bradley Manning,” according to MSNBC.
“Each of us brought you $5,000 — we’ll vote for you in 2012, yes that’s true. Look at the Republicans, what else can we do,” the group reportedly sang (see video below).
