In 1980 and 1981 15 Puerto Ricans were arrested and charged with
seditious conspiracy -fighting for the independence of Puerto Rico.
In 1999, after many years of struggle both here and in Puerto Rico,
President Clinton commuted the sentences of most of those who remained
incarcerated. In 2010 Carlos Alberto Torres was granted parole after
serving 30 years. Oscar Lopez-Rivera remains in prison having been
recently denied parole. It is time for him to come home and be with
his family and community!
