#FreeTheHostages

As long as  Iran continues this heinous practice and fails to release its  hostages there should be no agreement and no lifting of sanctions.

United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI) Senior Advisor Barry Rosen recently undertook a five-day hunger strike to protest the Iranian regime’s cruel practice of hostage taking. In support of that #FreeTheHostages campaign, UANI is calling on the negotiators from the P5+1 to collectively demand Tehran release all two-dozen foreign and dual-national hostages held within its borders and commit to the end of the reprehensible practice of hostage-taking as a precondition to any deals over Iran’s nuclear program and economic sanctions.

Iran’s unlawful, and inhumane practice of hostage-taking has endured for over 40 years. Hostages suffer significant mental, emotional, and physical trauma. The regime cruelly uses hostages for political and negotiation leverage in its dealings with other nations. As long as  Iran continues this heinous practice and fails to release its  hostages there should be no agreement and no lifting of sanctions.  

Help us demand action from the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Russia, China, and the European Union to #FreeTheHostages. Please sign the petition and join the UANI community in holding Iran accountable.

I am terribly sad. Throughout my professional and personal life, whenever I was unsure of what to say or think, my friend, the Senator, was always there. He had a unique gift for finding the right words to match any feeling or emotion, often with humor, a smile, and laughter. Now, as I write this without his guidance and kind wisdom, I feel his absence deeply. Having the Senator by my side was one of life's greatest gifts to me, and I know I'm not alone in feeling profoundly touched by him. That was the Senator's great gift—he touched and guided so many of us, either personally or through his example. --Ambassador Mark D. Wallace
