Campaign to Liberate Oscar López Rivera

The campaign for the liberation of Puerto Rican independence fighter Oscar López Rivera has intensified. During 32 years López Rivera has been imprisoned in the United States charged with “seditious conspiracy” and “conspiracy to escape” for which he received a 70 year sentence. He is now 70 years old. The objective of the campaign is for Barack Obama to pardon him and put a stop to an unjust incarceration. Follow the hashtags #FreeOscarLopez, #32XOscar and #LibertadOscar, and Facebook pages 32 x Oscar and Free Oscar López Rivera Now. For more information on López Rivera and the campaign please read here [es].
