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.
