Kickstarter Fundraising Campaign for
The Book: Oscar López Rivera: Between Torture and Resistance

Goal: $3,500

Our goal is to publish, in cooperation with 
renowned human rights activist and author Luis 
Nieves Falcon, the English-language edition of 
the recently published book Oscar Lopez Rivera: 
Between Torture and Resistance (San Juan, Comite 
pro Derechos Humanos de Puerto Rico). It is the 
story of one of Latin America's longest-held 
political prisoners, a Puerto Rican 
pro-independence activist who was convicted of 
the political "crime" of seditious conspiracy, 
not of harming anyone. Lavishly illustrated with 
photos of his life and artwork (he has become a 
painter during his now over thirty years behind 
bars), the book is an easily accessible 
introduction to U.S.-Puerto Rico relations and contemporary prison issues.
