FREEDOM MONTH!

On April 4th, 2010 the Puerto Rican Political Prisoners will have completed 30 years in jail for FIGHTING FOR PUERTO RICAN INDPENDENCE!!

Every April, ProLibertad organizes a series of events to denounce the arrests of our political prisoners. We use this month as a time to raise awareness around the prisoners and of Puerto Rico's colonial reality.
