One Year of Unjust Detention: Free Our Friends NOW!Added to the calendar on Friday Jul 16th, 2010 7:44 PM
Sarah Shourd, Shane Bauer, and Josh Fattal are activists with deep roots in the Bay Area, who have been unjustly detained in Iran for a year.
Sarah is a teacher, writer, and active feminist. Shane is a freelance journalist published in the Nation and Mother Jones (http://motherjones.com/politics/2009/09/sheik-down). Josh is an environmentalist and farmer. All three are anti-war activists.
Enough is enough! Sarah has been in solitary confinement and for a year despite requests for a cellmate.
Come check out speakers giving updates on the case and discussing human rights. Your presence is needed!
*Bring your instruments, bands, dancing abilities, and poetry for an open-mic in the park!*
"Our friends, Shane, Sarah and Josh have always taken a stand for justice in the Middle East. They have organised against the Iraq war, lived and worked with Palestinian and Iraqi refugees and campaigned against the Israeli occupation. Why is Iran holding them?" - Friends of SSJ
Please note: although some of us as individuals may support the political movement in Iran, this rally is focused on releasing our friends--and their work for racial justice, peace, and against U.S. imperialism. This is not a rally against the regime in Iran. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
