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,
