Free the Hikers campaign releases video petition to Iranian Govt.; Laura Ling and Euna Lee lend a hand

In early February, we told you about a video campaign launched by the Free the Hikers campaign - aimed at releasing the three American Hikers who are currently detained by the Iranian military after mistakenly hiking over the Iranian border in northern Kurdistan. The campaign has received an outpouring of online support, and recently released this mash-up video of all the video petitions they've received on YouTube, including 2 clips from Laura Ling and Euna Lee, the two American journalists who were released from a North Korean prison last year in a high-profile rescue mission by President Clinton.

Earlier this month, the hikers were allowed to call home for the first time. However, efforts to push for their release around the Iranian new year celebration of Nowruz didn't come to fruition. Find out more about what you can do to help at
