The council is expected to vote on the resolution in support of Pfc. Bradley Manning, who is being held in a military brig, on Tuesday.
It has already been approved by the city’s Peace and Justice Commission.
Bob Meola, the peace and justice commissioner who authored the resolution, tells the San Francisco Chronicle that Manning is a patriot and should get a medal.
But Commissioner Thyme Siegel — who voted against the resolution — says it is premature because the effects of the disclosures are not yet clear.
Federal officials have said such leaks could endanger lives.
