Who is Oscar López Rivera?
Now age 73, Oscar López Rivera is the longest-held political prisoner in Puerto Rican history. He was charged with seditious conspiracy — the same charge for which Nelson Mandela was imprisoned – for his participation in Puerto Rico’s independence movement. He was never accused of hurting anyone or participating in any violent crime – only of fighting for his country to be free.
Who supports Oscar’s freedom?
International human rights leaders such as Nobel Laureate Archbishop Desmond Tutu of South Africa, Adolfo Perez Esquivel of Argentina, Jose Ramos Horta of East Timor, Mairead Corrigan Maguire of Ireland, and others…; Puerto Ricans across the political and religious spectrum, including Puerto Rico’s Governor and Resident Commissioner, the Archbishop of San Juan; and tens of thousands who have signed letters for his release.
