Oscar Lopez Rivera is a Puerto Rican Independista and political prisoner serving 70 years for seditious conspiracy. Oscar is currently imprisoned at FCI Terre Haute. We here at Indiana Queer Prisoner Solidarity know that there can be no queer liberation without the destruction of colonialism. Solidarity means we must struggle together with other oppressed people(s) toward the goal of liberation. We hope others will join in this campaign to free a fighter from the jaws of the state.
Inspired by the “5th of every month for the Cuban 5” campaign and the 33 x Oscar initiative in Puerto Rico, The ProLibertad Freedom Campaign has decided to dedicate the 29th of every month to Oscar Lopez Rivera!
On the 29th of each month, we’re asking all our allies and supporters to CALL THE WHITE HOUSE AND DEMAND THE RELEASE OF PUERTO RICAN POLITICAL PRISONER OSCAR LOPEZ RIVERA!
Call President Obama at 202-456-1111 and leave a message! Let him know that Oscar Lopez Rivera has been in prison for too long and deserves to go home!
We need to flood the voice mail with our united demands for freedom!
Sample Message for your phone call:
President Obama, I ask that you free Puerto Rican Political Prisoner, Oscar Lopez Rivera. Since 1981, he has been in jail for fighting for Puerto Rican independence; he never committed a violent crime and has been a model prisoner. I ask that you follow in the foot steps of Presidents Truman, Carter, and Clinton, who freed other Puerto Rican activists, and set Oscar free!
