|The Last Prisoner
We are urging everyone to support the fundraising effort by Producer Esau Melendez and together we can make his dream of a documentary on OLR a reality. The goal is $42,500 and we only have 24 days left. Donate $25 or more and you will receive a complimentary ticket for April 11th honoring the centennial event of Oscar Collazo to be held at Casa Puertorriqueña at 6pm featuring a musical presentation by Emanuel Cruz, directly from Puerto Rico.
The fight for Oscar’s freedom has united Puerto Ricans and many others from across the United States, Puerto Rico and around the world. In 2013, artists, politicians, famous athletes and ordinary people went to symbolic prison cells on the anniversary of Oscar’s incarceration. And the cries for freedom are growing louder: Five Nobel Peace Prize winners including Bishop Desmond Tutu of South Africa have all joined the call for his pardon and release.
