On Thursday morning, Our Revolution, the progressive political action group created after Senator Bernie Sanders’ 2016 presidential campaign, released the following video that calls for the release of Oscar López Rivera, a Puerto Rican convicted in 1981 for seditious conspiracy. In the past few months, Puerto Ricans from all political stripes have been calling for President Barack Obama to pardon López Rivera before the start of a Donald Trump administration.

The video features Senator Sanders, Residente and members of López Rivera’s family. At the end of the video, Our Revolution tells people to “call the White House every weekday at 202-456-1111 until Oscar is free.” For more, follow #FreeOscarLópez.
