NBC Bay Area reported:
The Iran hikers chose the city of Oakland and the Occupy movement as the backdrop for a rare public appearance Monday.
Sarah Shourd, Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal took part in the an Occupy Oakland rally at Frank Ogawa plaza. They said they wanted to show their support to the movement taking place in their town.
Up until now Occupy rallies have been mostly economic protests, but the hikers appearance took a turn toward the political. The hikers said they also felt a solidarity with hunger strike going on now in California prisons.
This is only their second public appearance since returning home to the United States after being freed from prison in Iran. They were arrested in July 2009 after Iran said they crossed over its border during a hike in northern Iraq. Shourd was released in Sept. 2010. Bauer and Fattal were released last month.
All three graduated from University of California at Berkeley and Shourd has been living in Oakland since her release.
The hikers recently thanked Cindy Sheehan and Sean Penn for their release.
