A group in Charlottesville showed its support for a former Army intelligence analyst on trial for releasing classified information to the website Wikileaks.

Demonstrators held up signs and passed out pamphlets on Water Street Saturday morning to rally for the release of Private First Class Bradley Manning. Organizer Jennifer Stewart says it's important to understand how this case affects everyone.

"I want people to take away the fact that sometimes you have to do your own research, something you have to stay on top of what is going on and that our government does not always have our best interest at heart. Our government is not always doing what is right," she said.

Manning pleaded guilty in February to 10 of the 22 charges he faces. Friday night, a military judge began deliberating the remaining charges - which include aiding the enemy.
