Who is Puerto Rico’s political prisoner Oscar López Rivera?

Click on the above link to learn more about Oscar López Rivera.

Oscar has been incarcerated by the United States for 32 years for his struggle to decolonize Puerto Rico. The United Nations has issued 32 resolutions asking that the United States of America immediately decolonize Puerto Rico since it declared colonialism a crime against humanity in 1960.  The United States has ignored these 32 resolutions.  Those of us who believe that colonialism as well as slavery are crimes against humanity must work together to decolonize Puerto Rico.

Join 2 peaceful protests a year until it is accomplished.  The first one will be in Puerto Rico on the Abolition of Slavery Day in March 2014, and the second one will be in New York City on the day that the United Nations holds its annual hearing to discuss Puerto Rico’s colonial situation. 

We must protest peacefully if we do not want to be accomplices to this crime.   Moreover, we must protest peacefully because those who practice or accept colonialism don’t believe in justice for all.
