“I feel deep admiration and love for Oscar Lopez-Rivera, and all political prisoners of this Amerikkkan Empire; Oscar’s bravery in facing the cruelty of 32 years imprisonment, including his first 12 which were spent in total isolation from his and every community inspires me–to know what human beings are capable of surviving when they are committed to ideals as beautiful as Oscar’s. I hope my small part in doing a 24 hour vigil in solidarity with him in his long imprisonment will educate people about this injustice–and bring Oscar, finally, back home.”

Americans need to know that our government continues to imprison citizens long-term on the sole basis of their political beliefs. Oscar Lopez has grown old in prison for advocating Puerto Rican independence. His continued imprisonment is a humanitarian crisis and should be ended immediately.
