About Oscar López Rivera

Oscar López Rivera Often described as the Nelson Mandela of our generation, Oscar is the longest held Puerto Rican political prisoner in the history of the nation’s independence movement. Activists, singers, politicians, actors, students, religious leaders and lawyers the world over have called on President Barack Obama to exercise his Constitutional power of pardon, and to grant immediate and unconditional release to Oscar López Rivera.
About 33 Mujeres NYC x Oscar
33 Mujeres NYC x Oscar is a group of women from New York City committed to securing Oscar López Rivera’s freedom. We hold monthly rallies for 33 minutes on the last Sunday of every month from 4:00 – 4:33pm to signify the 33 years that Oscar has been imprisoned in federal penitentiaries, and will continue to hold monthly rallies until he is released. Our rallies coincide with actions occurring at the same date and time in San Juan, Puerto Rico that were initiated by 32 women in 2013 to mark Oscar’s 32nd year of imprisonment.
