THE OCTOBER 6TH PICKET CALLING FOR NORBERTO'S RELEASE HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED FOR THURSDAY OCTOBER 9TH, 2014!
Thursday Oct. 9th, 2014 @ 5pm
Picket at 26 Federal Plaza New York, New York
Take the 4, 5, or 6 to Brooklyn Bridge-City Hall
According to Norberto's family and support campaign in Puerto Rico, the Bureau of Prison and parole officials contacted Norberto's family and legal counsel to let them know that the date for his hearing has been rescheduled to Thursday October 9th. Now his family and counsel must change their travel and accommodation plans, in order to make this meeting.
Yet again, the U.S. government is railroading Norberto's family and legal counsel; this tactic to destabilize Norberto's support, won't work. We will still mobilize!

Puerto Rican Political Prisoner Norberto Gonzalez Claudio was supposed to be released from jail on September 7th, 2014! BUT HE’S STILL IN JAIL!
During his imprisonment, Norberto Gonzalez Claudio was denied medical treatment for his cancer; had his orthopedic shoe taken from him; wasn’t allowed to receive his mail; and denied visitation from family and legal counsel. Now, he is being kept in prison with no set release date.
Norberto was supposed to be released on Sept. 7th, but prison officials told his family and legal counsel that that date was incorrect. All of this makes no sense! It had been clearly established that Sept. 7th would be his release date. Despite inquires from his lawyers, no date has been established.
Now on Oct. 9th, A hearing will be held at Norberto’s penitentiary with his lawyers to discuss his release date, which could be in January 2015 or later.
Join ProLibertad as we denounce the U.S. government’s railroading of Norberto’s family and legal counsel. Join us as we demand Norberto’s immediate release!
