Comunicado de Prensa

 

Viequenses solidarios con jovenes citados por el Gran Jurado

 

El Comité Pro Rescate y Desarrollo de Vieques (CPRDV) envió una carta a las
oficinas del F.B.I.  en Puerto Rico y a la División de Derchos Civiles del
Departamento de Justicia Federal en la cual repudia el uso del Gran Jurado
contra el movimiento independentista de Puerto Rico.  En particular, la
misiva expresa la solidaridad de los viequenses con un grupo de jóvenes
puertorriqueños radicados en Nueva York citados por el Gran Jurado con el
fin de obligarles a identificar a personas con supuestos vínculos a los
Macheteros.  

 

El 23 de septiembre de 2005, el F.B.I. asesinó al líder de los Macheteros,
Filiberto Ojeda Ríos, en el pueblo de Hormigueros, Puerto Rico.  En el
operativo, agentes federales hirieron a Ojeda Ríos temprano en la noche pero
no permitieron que recibiera atención médica hasta la próxima mañana cuando
ya se había desangrado.  

 

La carta del CPRDV repudia “… el asesinato de Filiberto y los actos de
represión contra el independentismo en estos años …”.  El grupo viequense,
que jugó un papel prominente en la lucha contra la Marina de Guerra de EU en
la isla municipio, envió la carta como manera de reciprocar ‘la magia de la
solidaridad’ con los jóvenes boricuas amenazados por el Gran Jurado.  

 

“Tania Frontera, diseñadora gráfica;  Christopher Torres, trabajador social;
y el cineasta Julio Antonio Pabón, hijo, tres jóvenes profesionales
puertorriqueños dignos y activistas en las luchas por un mundo mejor,
merecen todo nuestro respaldo,” señaló Nilda Medina, portavoz del CPRDV.
Medina agradeció a las tres víctimas de la represión federal, por su
aportación a la lucha por la paz de Vieques, y exhortó a la comunidad en
general a participar en las actividades en repudio al Gran Jurado.

Compañer en s:         Tania Frontera      Christopher Torres    Julio Antonio
Pabón, hijo:

 

 

Desde Vieques expresamos nuestro más enérgico repudio a la represión
desatada contra el Movimiento Independentista Puertorriqueño tanto en el
archipiélago como en la diáspora durante los pasados dos años y en este
Nuevo Año que comienza.

 

El asesinato del Comandante Filberto Ojeda Ríos, líder de los Macheteros y
las acciones contra individuos y oficinas vinculados al indepententismo
puertorriqueño en estos años, ponen de relieve la naturaleza represiva de
los organismos policiacos federales en Puerto Rico, en particular, el F.B.I.


 

Por medio de este comunicado, el Comité Pro Rescate y Desarrollo de Vieques
manifiesta su repudio a las acciones recientes por parte del Gran Jurado
federal contra jóvenes independentistas puertorriqueñ@s en la ciudad de
Nueva York  (…un cineasta, una diseñadora gráfica y un trabajador social-
son personas que han apoyado la lucha de Vieques y la excarcelación de los
presos políticos, pero no son conocidos como miembros de organización
política alguna…) 

 

Vieques conoció la grandeza de la solidaridad en nuestra lucha por terminar
con la horrorífica presencia y actividad bélica de la Marina de Guerra de
EU.  Aprovechamos esta oportunidad para reciprocar la magia de la
solidaridad al enviar un fuerte abrazo de cariño y apoyo a l en s
puertorriqueñ@s en Nueva York arriba mencionad en s ante la amenaza a su
libertad que plantea el Gran Jurado.

 

En lucha, en solidaridad

 

Sus amigos en Vieques

 

(Firma miembros del CPRDV y otros de  la comunidad viequense)

The Committee for the Rescue and Development of Vieques (CRDV) sent a letter
to the office of the FBI in Puerto Rico and the Civil Rights Division of the
US Justice Department in Washington, DC, in which it repudiates the use of
the Grand Jury against the Puerto Rican independence movement.   In
particular, the note expresses the Viequenses'  solidarity with the group of
young Puerto Ricans in New York contacted by the Grand Jury to force them to
identify suspected associates of the Macheteros. 

 

On 23 September, 2005, the FBI assasinated Machetero leader, Filiberto Ojeda
Ríos, in the Puerto Rican town of Hormigueros.  In the action, federal
agents wounded Ojeda Rios early in the evening but did not allow him to
receive medical attention until the next morning, after he had already bled
to death.  

 

 

The CRDV letter repudiates "...the assasination of Filiberto and the acts of
repression against the Independence Movement in recent years...".  The
Vieques group that played a prominent role in the struggle against the US
Navy on the island municipality, sent the letter as a means to repay the
"magic of solidaritý"  with these young Puerto Ricans threatened by the
Grand Jury.

 

 

“Tania Frontera, graphic designer;  Christopher Torres, social worker;  and
filmaker, Julio Antonio Pabón, Jr., three young Puerto Rican professionals
and activists in the struggle for a better world, deserve all our support,"
stated Nilda Medina, spokesperson for the CRDV.  Medina thanked the three
victims of federal repression for their contribution to the struggle for
peace on Vieques and urged the community in general to participate in
activities to denounce the federal Grand Jury.

FBI on fishy fishing expedition 
 
Juan Gonzalez, New York Daily News
 Wednesday, January 9th 2008, 4:00 AM

A few days before Christmas, two men walked into Julio Pabon's  
sports memorabilia store on E.149th St. in the South Bronx.
 One of them identified himself as an FBI agent; the other was from  
the Joint Terrorism Task Force of the NYPD.
 "We're looking for Julio Pabon," one said.
 "Which one, father or son?" replied the store's employee.
 They wanted to ask the younger Pabon "some questions," the men said  
before leaving a business card.
 A few days later, Julio Antonio Pabon, a 27-year-old budding  
filmmaker and graduate of Wesleyan University in Connecticut,  
called the phone number on the card and arranged a meeting. He was  
accompanied by his mother.
 This time there was one detective and two FBI agents, including one  
from San Juan. They showed the young man 20 photos of Hispanic- 
looking individuals and asked if he knew any of them.
 Pabon told them he recognized only one, a poet named Hector Rivera.  
Years ago, when Pabon was president of the Latino club at Wesleyan,  
he asked Pedro Pietri, the celebrated New York poet who has since  
died, to arrange a performance for the students. Pietri sent Rivera  
and a group called Welfare Poets up to the school. That was the  
first and last time Pabon met Rivera.
 The agents immediately handed the young man a subpoena to appear in  
federal court on Jan. 11.
 He is one of at least three young Puerto Ricans in this city who  
have been subpoenaed to appear Friday before a Brooklyn federal  
grand jury investigating local links to the Macheteros, the three- 
decade-old violent Puerto Rican independence group.
 "There must be some mistake," the elder Pabon told me this week.  
"My son has never been a member of any political group, unless  
you're counting the Yankees' traveling fan group."
 Sure, more than 30 years ago, Pabon the father was a well-known  
Bronx community organizer and fervent advocate of Puerto Rican  
independence, but he never advocated terrorism.
 For the past few decades, he has been a respected businessman and  
promoter of Latino sports events and is known by virtually everyone  
of influence in the Bronx.
 "I've known Julito the son since he was born," said Rep. Jose  
Serrano (D-Bronx). "What could he and these other young people  
possibly know that helps the FBI?"
 In addition to the young Pabon, Tania Frontera, a graphic designer,  
and Christopher Torres, a social worker, have been subpoenaed.
 Frontera and Torres were active several years ago in the successful  
movement to end the Navy's use of the Puerto Rican island of  
Vieques as a bombing range, acquaintances say. Protests over the  
grand jury investigation are expected Friday here and in Puerto Rico.
 Serrano fears the federal government is once again using grand  
juries and law enforcement surveillance to intimidate Puerto Ricans  
engaged in legitimate dissent.
 Back in 2000, at the congressman's request, former FBI Director  
Louis Freeh declassified and released thousands of internal agency  
documents about the FBI's activities in Puerto Rico.
 Those documents revealed a massive campaign by the agency to  
disrupt and persecute independence groups from the 1930s to the  
late 1970s. The surveillance even targeted longtime governor of  
Puerto Rico Luis Muñoz Marin.
 Spokesmen for the FBI and the Brooklyn U.S. attorney's office  
refused to confirm or deny any new grand jury investigation.
 REPORTS in Puerto Rico and this city's Spanish-language El Diario- 
La Prensa have claimed for weeks that the grand jury is part of a  
new probe of the Macheteros, the underground Puerto Rican group  
best known for a $7 million Wells Fargo robbery in West Hartford,  
Conn., in 1983.
 In September 2005, the legendary founder of the group, Filiberto  
Ojeda Rios, was killed in a shootout with the FBI on a small farm  
in the hills of Puerto Rico.
 His death sparked a huge controversy on the island because Ojeda  
Rios, who was gravely injured in the shootout, bled to death when  
agents waited until the next morning to rush his farmhouse.
 Puerto Rico's Justice Department has tried ever since to obtain FBI  
records of the incident and the identities of the agents involved,  
but has been rebuffed and is suing the agency in federal court.
