THE JERICHO MOVEMENT DENOUNCES U.S MURDER OF PUERTO RICAN FREEDOM FIGHTER, FILIBERTO OJEDA RIOS, AND DEMANDS SWIFT JUSTICE
For The Jericho Movement for Amnesty & Freedom for All U.S. PP/POW/Exiles
By Herman Ferguson and Efia Nwangaza, National Co-Chairs (9/28/05)
Our deepest condolences and best wishes to the family of Filiberto Ojeda Rios, the Boricua People's Army, and the Puerto Rican people's independence movement. Know that, as we struggle to provide aid and comfort to U.S. Gulf coast communities hit by Hurricane Katrina, our thoughts are with you. We are outraged by this brutal assault on the Rios family, the people of Puerto Rico and the independence movement.
We have been inspired by Ojeda's longstanding commitment to freedom and the Puerto Rican people's support of their warriors and the war for independence. We are challenged by his and your persistence and resistance to the United States' on-going pattern of murder, disappearances, incommunicado detentions, secret evidence and legal proceedings, pre-trial/no charge detentions, torture, sexual assault, death threats, demonization and criminalization of our struggles and just causes.
Filiberto Ojeda Rios, the Boricua People's Army, and the Puerto Rican people's independence movement are an inspiration to and standard for The Jericho Movement and all political prisoners (PPs), prisoners of war (POWs), and exiles of the U.S. civil and human rights movements. We stand with you in complete solidarity. We join you in the celebration of the life of Ojeda and for the moment when you strike the blow for his justice. LONG LIVE FILIBERTO OJEDA RIOS!
PRESENTE! PRESENTE! PRESENTE!
¡Filiberto Ojeda Rios, Presente!
