Puerto Rican independence activist Oscar López Rivera, who was definitively released this Wednesday after more than 35 years as a political prisoner in the United States, will visit Cuba in November to personally thank the people who accompanied the struggle for his release. The news was heard in a telephone conversation between the Puerto Rican patriot and Fernando González Llort, president of the Cuban Institute of Friendship with the Peoples (ICAP), during a jubilant meeting with more than 200 people at the organization’s headquarters, where there have been carried out over the years numerous acts in support of this cause.
Fernando, who had been a companion for four years in Oscar’s cell, after several unsuccessful attempts to connect by telephone – which increased the anxiety of the audience and himself – finally managed to communicate and exclaimed: “Brother, how are you, good to hear your voice again! “, And then explained to Oscar the celebration that was taking place at that time at ICAP.Learn More
