A poem for Puerto Rican political prisoner Oscar López Rivera
“The National Boricua Human Rights Network (NBHRN), Batey Urbano and Latin@ Coalition [commenced] “31 Days for 31 Years” in which 31 activists and community residents [are spending] 24 hours each in a makeshift storefront cell with guard, for a total of 31 days. The exhibit, which started April 29th, also features an exhibition of Oscar’s artwork… as well as literature and posters from the campaign to free Puerto Rican political prisoners for the past 30 years and a wall of Oscar’s letters to his supporters. [There is also] a station where people may write to Oscar, in the Batey Urbano, located at 2620 West Division St. Chicago, IL 60622. Batey Urbano is in the heart of ‘Paseo Boricua’ in Chicago’s Humboldt Park neighborhood.”
