Oscar Lopez Rivera: Come Home! The International Campaign for his Freedom

October 26, 2010

In preparation for Oscar’s January parole hearing, the National Boricua Human Rights Network is stepping up its efforts to gather letters addressed to the parole commission asking that Oscar Lopez Rivera be granted parole.

Oscar was arrested in 1981 along with eleven others for “seditious conspiracy,” for his alleged association with the Fuerzas Armadas de Liberación Nacional (FALN), a Puerto Rican Independence group.  His sentence does not even link him to specific actions, but instead to the conspiracy charge.

The remaining eleven Puerto Rican activists have been released from prison, and yet Oscar remains locked up.
