Oscar Lopez Rivera petition/Jan. 8th save the date

The ProLibertad Freedom Campaign's New Campaign

834 is not Enough! Forward this out far and wide! Oscar needs your Support!
In solidarity with the National Boricua Human Rights Network's (NBHRN) new campaign
to ask for parole for Oscar Lopez Rivera, one of our two Puerto Rican Political
Prisoners, ProLibertad has started an online petition to pressure President Brack
Obama to give Oscar parole or to commute his sentence.

We are asking all freedom loving people to support both the online petition, which
will be sent to President Barack Obama once we have reached our goal of 10,000
petitioners, and to support the letter writing campaign by the NBHRN. Our letters
and online support will help us bring one of the longest held political prisoners

Both campaigns are important! We must use all avenues available to help win
parole/commutation for Oscar.

Sign our petition:

and send a letter out:

"Agitation, organization, resistance, struggle and love are the ingredients that
will guarantee us VICTORY!" -Oscar Lopez Rivera, Puerto Rican Political Prisoner

Join ProLibertad for a night of incredible CULTURE, RESISTANCE and CELEBRATION!
Come and have a great time as we celebrate Three Kings Day and the 68th birthday of
Puerto Rican Political Prisoner Oscar Lopez Rivera with:

The incredible BombaYo: BombaYo emerges from the streets and schoolyards of the
Bronx, where salsa and hip hop were born. Under the direction of Jose L. Ortiz aka
Dr. Drum and Melinda Gonzalez, this group of teens brings youthful energy to a
centuries old Afro Puerto Rican music and dance tradition. BombaYo starts from
within. At the core is a connection to the soul, where drum and dance become one.
African inspired call and response singing complete the synergy.

And the amazing poetry of:

The Powerful Bonafide Rojas

Nuyorican Poet/Activist Papoleto Melendez
