The San Francisco Support Committee for the unconditional release of Puerto Rican political prisoner Oscar López Rivera, calls all political, civic, religious, labor unions and the community in general to join us to demand his freedom.

Oscar López Rivera has spent thirty four years of his life imprisoned due to his unbending commitment for the independence and self-determination of our Puerto Rican nation.

Petitions from all over the globe supporting his unconditional release have been sent to the President of the United States from Nobel Prize Laureates such as Arch Bishop Desmond Tutu from South Africa, and Carlos Esquivel from Argentina to name a few.

The current Governor of Puerto Rico, Alejandro Garcia Padilla, as well as countless Puerto Rican artists and celebrities, and U.S. Congressional representatives, such as Luis Gutiérrez, José Serrano and Nydia Velázquez, have also made their voices heard in support of his immediate and unconditional release.
