Marchers are encourage to bring signs and flags from their organizations.
We will have various orators and music. Pepe Sánchez and Luis Enrique Romero will be our masters of ceremony.
Some of the participants, among others, will be: José Nogueras, El Topo, Noel Hernández, Luis Oliva, Silverio Pérez, Adean Caban Butter, y Daniel Rivera (Jr.).
The orators will be: José M. López Sierra, Rafael Cancel Miranda, Dr. Héctor Pesquera, Lic. Alejandro Torres, Rafael Bernabé, Pedro Muñiz, Padre Efraín Rodríguez y Tito Kayac.
We will need a tsunami of people to make the US government comply with 33 United Nations resolutions to immediately decolonize Puerto Rico. Help us get Puerto Rican colonialism out of the closet. Our protests will be permanent until we achieve Puerto Rico decolonization, and of course, Oscar’s release. The tsunami of people is indispensable to achieve that, because those who practice or accept colonialism don’t believe in justice for all!
