OSCAR LOPEZ RIVERA
There is an innate feeling and desire in every human being to be free.
The place where one is born is sacred.
When your sensibilities are shaken by the continued injustices thrust upon your country, the wise, sensible soul knows it’s time to do something about it.
This is one such human being.
The actions he took were the only resort he had to continue attempts started by others to free Puerto Rico.
Look long and hard at the way “the Master” has treated it’s colony, the Island of Puerto Rico.
“Desperate times, desperate measures.”
The “powers that be” continue to conspire against him.
He’s been the longest held political prisoner in history.
Time to set him free!!
Oscar López Rivera (born 6 January 1943) is a Puerto Rican nationalist and one of the leaders of the FALN
In 1981, López Rivera was convicted and sentenced to 55 years in federal prison for seditious conspiracy, use of force to commit robbery, interstate transportation of firearms, and conspiracy to transport explosives with intent to destroy government property. In 1988 he was sentenced to an additional 15 years in prison for conspiring to escape from prison.
López Rivera was among the 14 convicted FALN members offered conditional clemency by U.S. President Bill Clinton in 1999, but rejected the offer. His sister, Zenaida López, said he refused the offer because on parole, he would be in “prison outside prison.”
Resident Commissioner, Pedro Pierluisi, has stated that “the primary reason that López Rivera did not accept the clemency offer extended to him in 1999 was because it had not also been extended to fellow FALN prisoner Carlos Torres (who was subsequently released from prison in July 2010).”
According to New York Times writer John Broder, López Rivera “refused to accept the President’s offer to commute their sentences.
Mr. Clinton demanded as one of the conditions of their release that the jailed Puerto Ricans renounce the use of terrorism to achieve their aim of independence for the Caribbean commonwealth.”
The continued imprisonment of López Rivera has been both opposed as well as supported by groups and individuals representing political, religious, and other various establishments.
While some call him a terrorist, others call him as a political prisoner.
