Union del Barrio- Los Angeles

Lawrence Reyes was a great comrade who dedicated his life to helping others. In Los Angeles, nobody represented the struggle for Puerto Rican independence more than compañero Lawrence. He uplifted the struggle for the liberation of Borinquen everywhere he went. He was a lifelong militant of the Young Lords, founder of the Puerto Rican Alliance and was a member of Union del Barrio for a time because he believed and upheld the revolutionary aspirations of our organization and for Mexican liberation and self-determination. He was a valuable member of the Pacifica Radio family and organized for the freedom of all political prisoners.

Lawrence was not just a Puerto Rican nationalist, he was also an internationalist and anti-imperialist. He demonstrated true solidarity with people around the world who were fighting for liberation and against injustice. Lawrence always remained active in struggle and fought until the end, even for his life and of course for his family. He is an example for all of us to follow.

In the revolutionary spirit of comrade Lawrence we continue to support the struggle for true independence and socialism in Puerto Rico!
Our deepest condolences go out to his son Taino, to Gilda, his sisters, and the rest of his family and loved ones in Nuevo York, LA, & Puerto Rico; and to all his comrade brothers and sisters everywhere!

Rest in peace and power, camarada.
Lawrence Reyes, PRESENTE!
Hasta la Victoria siempre! Venceremos!
