Chicago Fundraiser for NYC May 30th March and Rally 

Please Donate to Our Bus Ride to Bring Oscar López 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 López 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.
