Supporters of Berkeley graduates Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal, who have been detained for nearly two years on charges of espionage in Iran, have organized a Week of Action called One Million Voices for Shane and Josh, urging people to flood the Interests Section of the Islam Republic of Iran in Washington, D.C. with messages of support. Their trial date is set for July 31, exactly two years after they and fellow hiker Sarah Shourd, who was released last September, were arrested.
Beginning Monday, July 25th, 8AM EST through Friday, July 29th, 5pm EST (the week before their trial in Tehran) call the Interests Section of the Islamic Republic of Iran in Washington D.C. at (202) 965-4990 with the following message:
“I am a supporter of Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal. I know that the two are not spies and urge you to release them and allow them to travel home to their families tomorrow.”
Please remember to be polite and respectful.
Just like our mommas always told us. We really hope that still works.
