The International Committee for Peace, Justice and Dignity Joins the Campaign to Demand the Immediate Freedom of Oscar Lopez Rivera
REGALO PA OSCAR-LIBERTAD
As Oscar López Rivera approaches his 73rd birthday on January 6, 2016 the National Puerto Rican Agenda and the National Boricua Human Rights Network are launching a social media campaign (Twitter and Facebook) calling for his release.
Oscar, a Bronze Star decorated Vietnam Veteran, has never been charged or convicted of a violent crime, yet has served 12 years in solitary confinement. The Archbishop of Puerto Rico, 6 Nobel Laureates, 6 Presidents of Latin America, all three major political tendencies in Puerto Rico, and 6 members of Congress have called for his release.
This call to action on January 6, 2016, his birthday and Three Kings Day, comes as President Barack Obama enters his last year in office and Oscar enters his 35th year of imprisonment- the Puerto Rican people’s longest-held political prisoner.
On this day, the National Boricua Human Rights Network is asking YOU to participate on Twitter and Facebook:
