I cried as I read this because it is only one of the many atrocities committed against my people in the 100+ Puerto Rico has been under US colonial rule. 32 years this man has been held as a political prisoner, for exerting his right as a citizen of a colonized nation to use armed struggle to combat the colonial power. For exerting our rights, lawful under international law, him and many other pro-independence nationalists have been persecuted, incarcerated, and killed. It is time that the american people demand from their government a stop to the hypocrisy. How can the US mourn the death of Nelson Mandela, and still hold a freedom fighter in one of their cells? Justicia para Oscar!!!!!
