On Sunday, December 4, hundreds of activists and 
community residents partook of good food and 
political messages as the annual pancake/waffle 
breakfast sponsored by Prairie Fire Organizing 
Committee raised over $2000.00 for Vida/SIDA, an 
AIDS education and prevention program of the 
Puerto Rican Cultural Center and commissary for 
Puerto Rican Political Prisoners Carlos Alberto Torres and Oscar López Rivera.

Participants were treated to their choice of 
pancakes, waffles, vegan pancakes and fruit salad 
with a delicious raspberry yogurt compote and 
various fruit juices and coffee. The morning’s 
program consisted of an introduction by Annie 
Stanton, as well as a brief message by Michelle 
Morales of the coordinating committee of the 
National Boricua Human Rights Network, who 
presented a slide show of the “Not Enough Space” 
art exhibition opening in San Juan two weeks ago, 
featuring artwork by Carlos Alberto Torres and Oscar López Rivera.

In addition, as part of the first International 
Day of Solidarity with Political Prisoners, which 
was celebrated in over 25 cities around the 
world, people were also fortunate to listen to 
recorded messages from North American 
Anti-Imperialist Marilyn Buck, Death Row 
Political Prisoner Mumia Abu Jamal and Puerto 
Rican Political Prisoner Carlos Alberto Torres.
