Shane, Sarah and Josh – 1 year later
Dear Heather Dalberg,
Next Saturday, Shane, Sarah and Josh will have been unjustly detained for one year.
We know you are appalled that Iran has chosen to act in such a cruel and inhumane way. We ask you to channel your outrage around the one-year marker on July 31st to help send Iran the message: ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
Here are some ways you can do that:
·Join Shane, Sarah and Josh’s mothers in New York City (40th St. and 3rd Ave.) on July 30th from 12:30-2:00pm at their protest outside of the Iranian Mission to the UN. Bring hiking gear, white ribbons, signs, and – most importantly – friends.
·Attend one of the dozens of events taking place across the US and around the world on July 31st, from Colorado to New Delhi, and invite all of your friends to the various events on Facebook:
·Organize an event, especially if you are living near an Iranian embassy or consulate. If you plan on organizing something, please get in touch with email@example.com
·Write letters to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and ask religious leaders, scholars and politicians from around the world do the same. You can send an electronic letter here: http://www.wilayah.org/langs/en/index.php?p=letter
Hard copies can be routed through Iranian embassies, including the Iranian Mission to the UN: http://www.iran-un.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=category&layout=blog&id=60&Itemid=87
·Write a blog or op-ed calling for the hikers’ immediate release. We need you now more than ever.
