LAWYERS FOR POOR AMERICANS WISHES ALL OUR FRIENDS IN & OUT OF GOVERNMENT IN IRAN A VERY HAPPY HOLIDAY SEASON & A NEW YEAR FILLED WITH JOY, HAPPINESS & PEACE.

WE HOPE & PRAY IRANS LEADERS UNDERSTAND & REMEMBER WE little Americans LIVING IN OUR ELITE'S AMERICA ONLY HEAR & READ MEDIA REPORTS THAT OUR 2 AMERICAN HIKERS CURRENTLY BEING HELD IN IRAN ARE COMPLETELY INNOCENT OF ANYTHING OTHER THEN BEING YOUNG LOST HIKERS LOOKING FOR ADVENTURE IN THE MOUNTAINS OF IRAQ.

EVERYONE WORLD~WIDE KNOWS ABOUT VARIOUS COUNTRIES SECRET AGENTS WHO SPY ON OTHERS GOVERNMENTAL AFFAIRS, BUT IT APPEARS RATHER OBVIOUS TO THE REST OF THE FREE WORLD THAT THESE 2 LONG LOST AMERICAN HIKERS THAT ARE BEING HELD AGAINST THEIR WILL IN IRAN ARE NOTHING MORE THEN INNOCENT CAPTIVES WHO ARE BEING IMPROPERLY USED BY BOTH AMERICA & IRAN FOR POLITICAL PURPOSES ONLY !!!

WE ASK IRANS WISE & CARING LEADERS TO AGAIN PLEASE CONSIDER SENDING OUR AMERICAN HIKERS HOME TO BE ABLE TO JOIN THEIR FAMILIES THIS HOLIDAY SEASON.

IRAN BEING A FUTURE WORLD POWER DESERVES TO BE THOUGHT OF IN THE U.S. AS HAVING SPECIAL LEADERS WITH BIG HEARTS & POLITICAL SAVY WHO ALL SHOULD KNOW HOW IMPORTANT IT IS FOR us little Americans on the www(* ALL ACROSS AMERICA) TO BE ABLE TO EXPLAIN YOUR GREAT COUNTRIES POLITICAL ACTIONS TO THE REST OF AMERICA FROM A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE THEN WHAT OUR MAIN~LINE MEDIA HAS TO OFFER ???

THERE ARE MANY KEEN MINDS & GOOD SOULS IN IRAN WHO ALL KNOW ABOUT PERCEPTION & REALITY IN WORLD AFFAIRS. PLEASE PUT ALL YOUR HEARTS & HEADS TOGETHER ON THIS ONE PRIOR OUR CHRISTMAS SEASON ENDING AND PERFORM AN ACT OF MERCY THAT WILL BE SEEN & HEARD WORLD~WIDE !!!

IRAN & AMERICA NEED TO BE FUTURE PEACE PARTNERS IN AN EVER CHANGING WORLD OF TURMOIL.

LAWYERS FOR POOR AMERICANS KNOWS THAT A CARING GESTURE OF RELEASE OF OUR 2 AMERICAN CITIZENS CAN POSSIBLY BE JUST THE START OF NEW RELATIONS BETWEEN BOTH OUR COUNTRIES.

THIS IN~KIND EARLY CHRISTMAS RELEASE COULD VERY WELL BECOME A KEY IN JUMP~STARTING OUR TWO GREAT NATIONS TO BOTH SIT DOWN WITH FACE TO FACE FUTURE PEACE TALKS THAT COULD ALSO LEAD INTO A SINCERE LONG LASTING INTERNATIONAL RELATIONSHIP THAT BETTER SERVES both our countries little people WITH A FUTURE OF PEACE INSTEAD OF NEEDLESS WAR.

FAMILIES SICK WITH WORRY, PLEAD FOR THANKSGIVING RELEASE

FRIENDS AND SUPPORTERS SEND IN BANNERS AND SIGNS ACROSS THE GLOBE

DEC 6TH FREE ALL THREE EVENT @ THE VERDI CLUB, SAN FRANCISCO

“As secretary-general of the United Nations, I would sincerely hope that the Iranian government will again very favorably consider releasing the remaining two American hikers so that they could join their families as soon as possible.”
~Ban Ki-moon, Secretary General of the United Nations

“We urgently appeal to the Islamic Republic of Iran to release Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal without further delay and show the same compassion to them that the Iranian authorities graciously extended to their companion Sarah Shourd.”
~Desmond Tutu, Mairead Maguire, Noam Chomsky

SIGN THE NEW PETITION!

WATCH NEW FILM ABOUT JOSH & SHANE

‘Free Shane And Josh’: New Documentary On Detained Hikers Offers More Evidence Of Their Innocence (VIDEO). Go to the Huffington Post to find out about this new film.

INTERNATIONAL BANNER DAY SUBMISSIONS

THE HIKERS’ STORY:
Iranian forces detained Shane Bauer, his fiancée Sarah Shourd and their close friend Josh Fattal on July 31, 2009 while they were enjoying a recreational hike in the mountains of Iraqi Kurdistan. There are conflicting news reports about whether Iranian forces entered Iraq to arrest the three young Americans or they strayed across the poorly marked border by mistake.

Sarah, 32, was released on September 14, 2010, on humanitarian grounds after spending 410 days in solitary confinement and immediately vowed to work for the freedom of Shane and Josh, both 28. All three were charged shortly before Sarah’s release with illegal entry and espionage at a hearing in Evin Prison in Tehran where they were finally allowed to meet their lawyer for only the first time.

Shane, Sarah and Josh are innocent of any crime and, as Amnesty International reports, their extended pre-trial detention is a violation of Iranian and international law. Their detention is arbitrary and inhumane and we call on the Iranian authorities to show Shane and Josh the same compassion they have shown Sarah and release them without further delay.

Shane and Josh have been allowed to telephone their families only once, on March 9, and have not been allowed to send letters. The mothers of Shane, Sarah and Josh traveled to Iran in May 2010 to visit them but were allowed to stay for only two days.

Shane, Sarah, and Josh are all graduates of the University of California at Berkeley. They care greatly about our world and have a documented record as advocates for social and environmental justice. They admire and respect different cultures and religions and share a love of travel that has taken them to many countries. That is why they went to Iraqi Kurdistan, not because they wanted to enter Iran.

JOSH FATTAL: 444 DAYS IN IRAN…AND COUNTING
This is a Free the Hikers film about Josh Fattal, still unjustly detained in Iran along with Shane Bauer.
