Once a week, starting Wednesday January 19 from 1-4 EST, National Boricua Human Rights is calling for a National Call and Fax in Campaign blitz for Oscar Lopez until further notice
Parole Board Phone call-in script
US Parole Board phone: (301) 492-5990
Hi, my name is ______________ and I live in Chicago [NY, etc.] The Parole Commission should parole Oscar López # 87651-024 immediately, in spite of the hearing examiner’s recommendation to deny parole.
IF YOU HAVE TIME, USE ONE OF THE FOLLOWING REASONS:
1) Oscar has the support of a broad sector of Puerto Rico’s civil society as well as Puerto Rican and Latino communities throughout the United States.
2) Oscar was not accused or convicted of causing injury or taking a life. He was never accused or con-victed of participating in the 1975 Fraunces Tavern bombing or any other action that resulted in injury or death.
3) President Clinton’s determination that Mr. López Rivera’s sentence was disproportionately lengthy, and his offer that would have resulted in Mr. López Ri-vera’s release in September of 2009.
We are in the second phase of Campaign to Free Oscar Lopez Rivera-Effective Immediately
The Parole Board has not come to a decision yet.
As of today, the National Boricua Human Rights Network launches the second phase of the campaign for Oscar López Rivera's freedom!
With a letter, fax and phone-in campaign, the NBHRN and the Puerto Rico-based Comité Pro-Derechos Humanos are urging the parole commissioners to reject the wrong-headed and politically punitive recommendation of the parole examiner. We intend to flood the Parol Board with letters until they respond. We estimate this will take 6-8 weeks, so every day counts. Please keep close track of the letters sent/faxed to the Parole Board. Please forward far and wide and post and repost. PLEASE SEND OR FAX LETTERS, NOT BOTH, AS THE PAROLE BOARD WILL BE KEEPING TRACK OF THEM. Please contact me with any questions.
thank all of you for all of your work on this campaign,
LET'S FREE OSCAR,
A power-to-the-people email I'm sharing with you all..........................
The 26th amendment (granting the right to vote for 18 year-olds) took
only 3 months & 8 days to be ratified! Why? Simple! The people
demanded it. That was in 1971...before computers, before e-mail,
before cell phones, etc.
Of the 27 amendments to the Constitution, seven (7) took 1 year or
less to become the law of the land...all because of public pressure.
In three days, most people in The United States of America will have
this message. This is one idea that really should be passed around.
Congressional Reform Act of 2011
1. Term Limits.
12 years only, one of the possible options below..
A. Two Six-year Senate terms
B. Six Two-year House terms
C. One Six-year Senate term and three Two-Year House terms
2. No Tenure / No Pension.
A Congressman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay
when they are out of office.
3. Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social Security.
All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the Social
Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social
Security system, and Congress participates with the American people.
4. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all Americans do.
5. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Congressional
pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.
6. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in
the same health care system as the American people.
7. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American people.
8. All contracts with past and present Congressmen are void effective 1/1/11.
The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen.
Congressmen made all these contracts for themselves.
Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers
envisioned citizen legislators, so ours should serve their term(s),
then go home and back to work.
If each person contacts a minimum of twenty people then it will only
take three days for most people (in the U.S. ) to receive the message.
Maybe it is time.
THIS IS HOW YOU FIX CONGRESS!!!!! If you agree with the above, pass it on.
Please keep it going.
