Sponsored by May 30th Coalition to Free Oscar Lopez Rivera

FREE ALL POLITICAL PRISONERS AND PRISONERS OF WAR!

On Saturday, May 30th, thousands of people will gather in New York City 
for “A Day For Oscar López Rivera,” a march and rally to demand the 
release of Puerto Rican activist and icon Oscar López Rivera, a 
72-year-old decorated Vietnam veteran who on May 29^th begins his 34^th 
year in prison despite having never been charged with any violent crime. 
He has served 12 of those years in complete, total isolation.

A broad coalition of church, community, labor and civic organizations 
has come together to plan and support this unprecedented mobilization. 
This support includes: Nobel Prize winners, governors, senators, 
celebrated artists and people from across the political and religious 
spectrum. The coalition has already accomplished a great deal, from 
turning out a huge contingent of supporters at the National Puerto Rican 
Day Parade - —which was dedicated to Oscar’'s freedom - —to launching a 
highly successful social and digital media campaign to amplify the calls 
for his release. But *we need your help to take this movement to the 
next step and to turn out as many people as possible on May 30th.*
