In Honor of Filiberto Ojeda Rios

Denver Anarchist Black Cross

 Today is the birthday of Filiberto Ojeda Rios, a leader in the Puerto Rican struggle for independence.  Born on April 26, 1933, Rios was a leader in the clandestine Puerto Rican liberation army Los Macheteros.

On September 23, 2005, Rios was assassinated by the FBI in his Puerto Rican home.  Since 2005 he has become a symbol of the continuing struggle for Puerto Rican liberation.  Many comrades from his generation of Puerto Rican revolutionaries remain locked away in US prisons and can be found in the Denver ABC prisoner database.
