On Three Kings Day, January 6th, 2013, the Orlando chapter of National Boricua Human Rights celebrated the 70th birthday of Puerto Rican Political Prisoner, Oscar López Rivera. Before a beautiful birthday cake draped in the Puerto Rican flag, they left an empty seat for Oscar.
In just the past couple months, the chapter has collected over 1000 signatures, hosted a major press conference, and organized several activities about Oscar. Located at the heart of Puerto Rican Florida, the Orlando chapter has already made a major impact on the international campaign seeking Oscar’s immediate release.
A few days ago, I recevied an exquisite piece of art: the Three Kings, which by their color and physical features contrasted with the eurocentric version of the icons. The work of art resulted in a hymn of happiness for my senses upon learning that the author was Oscar López Rivera, patriot who has served more than thirty years in prison.
