The ProLibertad Freedom Campaign is calling on all our allies and supporters
of justice to join us on Monday Sept. 26th at 5pm at 26 Federal Plaza to
denounce the assassination of Puerto Rican revolutionary leader Filiberto

On Friday Sept. 23rd, in a massive Federal Bureau of Investigation (F.B.I.)
operation in the town of Hormigueros, Puerto Rico, Filiberto Ojeda Rios,
leader of the clandestine revolutionary organization called El Ejercito
Popular Boricua-Macheteros (The Popular Boricua Army-Machete Wielders) was
assassinated by an FBI sniper.
During the ensuing gun battle, Beatriz Rosado Barbosa, Ojeda Rios' wife, was
critically wounded and then arrested, along with an F.B.I. agent. Both are
presently hospitalized, and a third man has yet to be identified by
This assassination is an attack against the Puerto Rican Independence
movement that cannot go unanswered!! We must mobilize and organize a
response to this heinous act of murder. Ojeda Rios represented the
revolutionary spirit and morality of the Puerto Rican independence
The FBI chose to assassinate Ojeda Rios on Friday Sept. 23rd (Known as El
Grito de Lares, a celebration of the anti-colonial resistance movement in
Puerto Rico) as a message to the independence movement; the US government is
trying to tell us that if we resist, then we will be murdered like Ojeda
Rios, Don Pedro Albizu Campos, Angel Rodrgiuez Cristobal and the many other
Puerto Rican patriots that have fallen at the hands of the US governement.
We will not be scared or initmidated. The power of the people cannot be
stopped!! We make freedom happen; we make liberation happen!!
WE WILL RISE, RESIST AND REBEL!! Join us in our outrage, mourning and
resistance!! Wear a black arm band, wear all black, bring your noise
makers, your flags and your 25 closest friends to the protest!! MOBILIZE IN
