In Philadelphia the birthday of Oscar López and the celebration of Three Kings Day included special presentations at Christ and St. Ambrose Episcopal and Norris Square Presbyterian churches.
People were given information about Oscar’s case, including his supporters and the statement of reasons for his release. Petitions were signed and volunteers agreed to take petitions to their neighbors. People from the Episcopal congregation had previously signed and mailed a holiday/birthday card to Mr. López, and the Presbyterian congregation will be organizing a youth meeting where “Dissent is not a Crime” will be presented. In addition, this Friday the 11th, Jose López will be speaking to students at the Esperanza Academy High School.
