Chicago Fundraiser for NYC May 30th March and Rally 

Please Donate to Our Bus Ride to Bring Oscar L�pez Home!

By Matt McCanna, Chicago National Boricua Human Rights Network

National Boricua Human Rights Network in Chicago is taking 100 people to the New York 'March to Bring Oscar L�pez Rivera Home' on May 30th.

Marchers will be demanding the release of Oscar. Now age 72, he is the longest-held political prisoner in Puerto Rican history. He was charged with seditious conspiracy - the same charge for which Nelson Mandela was imprisoned - for his participation in Puerto Rico's independence movement. He was never accused of hurting anyone or participating in any violent crime; only of fighting for his country to be free.


The funding raised here will go toward renting a 55 passenger coach bus to transport supporters from Chicago to New York City. Continue reading.
