We, supporters of a worldwide free press, call on the government of Iran to stop silencing the voices of journalists and release them from its prisons. At this crucial time in Iran’s history, journalists, whose job it is to report what is happening on the streets and among the Iranian people, are the eyes and ears of the world. By putting journalists in prison, the government of Iran has not stopped the world from knowing what is transpiring inside Iran. You have only added to the alarm with which the world views events. In the name of a full and free debate, we ask that you release all journalists, whose only crime has been the desire to tell the story of what is happening in Iran today.
