The digital magazine La Respuesta has put together a series of photo galleries [1] that chronicle efforts in Chicago, New York City, and Cleveland to release Puerto Rican political prisoner Oscar López Rivera from prison [2]. Oscar has already served 33 years in prison, an exaggerated amount of time for the charge of “seditious conspiracy.” Global Voices’ coverage in English of Oscar and the ongoing campaign to release him can be found here [3], here [4], and here [5].
