Next Call in day: January 29th!
Father Luis Barrios, of The Inter-Religious Foundation for Community Organization/Pastors for Peace endorses Call in campaign for Oscar Lopez Rivera:
The radical journey to support Oscar is a passage for social justice and a political stance on social issues, human rights and dignity. As a priest I can testify that his virtue of radical spirituality is to respect, accept and celebrate people’s rights to self determination. With this radical spirituality, Oscar continues to be a man of precious honor who persist to make a profound impact on humanity, more specific, on those who suffer from colonialism, oppression and exclusion.
Let’s bring Oscar home now.
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!
We need to flood the voice mail with our united demands for freedom!
Make your call on Thursday January 29th, 2015
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!
