This panel workshop will explore the success of the Oscar Lopez Rivera freedom movement at the local ( diaspora) Puerto Rico and at the international level; strengths in the coalition building and strategic model considerations for securing the release of all political prisoners in the USA. We will examine the lessons learned for the 35 years of this struggle to free Oscar and the analysis of historical conjectures.
