Update on Parole Campaign for Oscar Lopez Rivera‏


UPDATE ON CAMPAIGN
Wednesday, February 16, 2011

Hi everyone:

As of yesterday, there is still no word from the United States Parole Board (USPC). We believe this means we are having an impact. MORE THAN EVER, OUR TIMING IS CRITICAL. Although the USPC said they would try to make a decision by last week, the designation of Oscar's case as "Original Jurisdiction" gives them an unlimited length of time to make the decision to affirm or reject the US Parole Examiner's recommendation.

WE SUCCESSFULLY TRANSMITTED OVER 200 FAXES YESTERDAY, FEB 15. PLEASE CONTINUE TO FAX THE LETTERS YOU HAVE COLLECTED TO EITHER 301/492-5543 OR ALTERNATE FAX NO: 202/492-5307

Please continue to call-in and mail letters. The USPC is telling callers that they must write (only write, not call or fax). PLEASE CONTINUE TO CALL 301-492-5990. Part of our insistence on calling is to offset the conservative and reactionary callers that are calling every day.

We need to continue to apply the pressure. Please continue to call ONCE A DAY, EVERY DAY, UNTIL WE HEAR FROM THE PAROLE BOARD.

We need to everyone to continue to post on your websites and Facebook and retweet. Every day they do not make a decision means one more day we have to make an impact with calls and letters!

WE CAN FREE OSCAR,
Alejandro
