29th of EVERY month for Oscar Lopez Rivera

http://www.prolibertadweb.org/29th-of-everymonth-for-oscar

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!

Call President Obama at 202-456-1111 and leave a message!  Let him know that Oscar Lopez Rivera has been in prison for too long and deserves to go home! 

We need to flood the voice mail with our united demands for freedom! 

Sample Message for your phone call:
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!

Rockford, IL, April 24: Rally for Mumia Abu-Jamal

In celebration of political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal’s 61st birthday, FIST calls for all those who oppose the injustice system which lets racist police who kill free and locks up community leaders to rally outside the jail in downtown Rockford at 1pm on Friday, April 24. Recently, Mumia has been facing a dire health crisis due to the prison’s purposeful ignoring of his medical needs. It has been their plan to murder this powerful leader since the day they locked him up and it has been the support of the people which have kept him alive to this day.
