 UPDATE: Iceberg 1 Mariners Action Group web site here.
 

 UPDATE:  You can now join Iceberg 1 Mariners Action Group here. 

 Looking for mariners and one who would like to add their name to the effort to assist the crew of the Iceberg1.

The M/V Iceberg 1,  has been held by  Somali - based pirates since March 29, 2010 and has been abandoned by it's owners, Azal Shipping & Cargo, UAE and, as far as I know, no one is working for it's release except the families of the crew who have little leverage

As individuals we also have little leverage to assist the crew. To gain leverage, a  group of mariners,  the M/V Iceberg 1 Mariners Action Group  is being formed to:  "to bring international attention to their plight, and pressure to bear for their release". 
  
The group has started the  M/V Iceberg 1 Mariners Action Group, Facebook page. At this point we've not established a way to join the group except to leave a comment  but:  "please help by Liking, linking, tweeting;  spreading the word!"

The M/V Iceberg 1 Mariners Action Group currently is supported by myself and Reid Sprague of Pear Link and we are seeking more support. - Reid's post about the MAG is here:  Reid is planning a petition. I'll post  more when we've got more, meanwhile go "like"  M/V Iceberg 1 Mariners Action Group, Facebook page.
