Hola Compatriotas, Activists, Friends, Colleagues, and Supporters!

Hope all is well and that you are enjoying the summer as it is winding 

This is a friendly reminder and encouragement to join with the *Puerto

commemorate and celebrate the resistance of the People of Puerto Rico 
who continue to fight for independence and economic liberation from 
colonial oppression!  The upcoming events include the 100th Birthday of 
a great liberation fighter and shero Lolita Lebron. And, to honor her 
posthumously with a widely performed play *“Lolita: A Monologue”* about 
her life and liberation struggle. In addition, and in*Solidarity* with 
Political Prisoners who sacrifice their freedom in the struggle for 
liberation from oppression and for international liberation, a Forum 
with an interactive panel composed of former Political Prisoners will 
contribute to the true spirit of the *Day Of Solidarity With The People 
Of Puerto Rico! *
