OCA-NY presses on with ongoing efforts to call attention to the tragic death of 19-year-old Private Danny Chen. It was recently announced that any court-martial of the eight individuals charged in connection with Danny's death would take place in the United States at Fort Bragg, North Carolina.
The fight for justice continues, and they're asking for public support with their Birthday Card Campaign. Please consider signing and sending a card, calling for justice, in observance of Private Chen's upcoming birthday on May 26. In mid-May, they'll deliver the cards to Members of the House and Senate Armed Services Committees in Washington, D.C.
Here are more details on how you can take part:
1) Create a birthday card for Private Danny Chen.They'll be collecting cards until May 14, 2012. Don't let Private Chen's death get swept under the rug, and don't let his case fall through the cracks. For further information, and to see other birthday cards, go to the #justicefordannychen Tumblr, and view the campaign's Facebook event here.
