Oscar is Present at Occupy the Jails in Oakland and Chicago

Oscar López Rivera was present and on the minds of those activists and sympathizers who attended Occupy the Jails on Monday, Feb 20 in both Oakland, CA and Chicago, IL. In Oakland, Claude Marks of the Freedom Now Archives read a message from Oscar accompanied by environmentalist Dr. Deborah Santana at the rally in San Quentin. In Chicago, National Boricua Human Rights Network coordinator Alejandro Luis Molina read the same message from Oscar, accompanied by Jan Susler from the People’s Law Office, to a crowd of 60+ that gathered at the Chicago Metropolitan Correctional Center after a short march. Below is the message.
“I’m inviting every person who loves freedom and justice and believes that a better and more just world is possible to join me in solidarity with the OWS movement. If we are indignados, who believe in the power of righteous indignation, we should be supportive of the OWS movement. This movement has been able to galvanize the people’s righteous indignation and has successfully activated and mobilized a mass force that has shaken the foundation of the one per cent that controls the wealth and the political power at the expense of the 99 percent that doesn’t have any wealth or any control of the political power. The one percent is already using its muscle to try to repress the OWS movement and to disorganize it. Our solidarity is crucial. If you aren’t an indignado or occupier there is no good reason why you shouldn’t share your solidarity with OWS. If you want a better and more just world then you have to dare to struggle to make sure it becomes a reality. En resistencia y lucha, OLR”
