Join ProLibertad, Ismael Guadalupe Ortiz (Long time Vieques Activist), and

Tito Kayak, a Puerto Rican environmentalist and civil disobedient, was
arrested on Monday June 13th, 2005 for attempting to lower the United
Nations flag and replacing it with the Puerto Rican flag; this was an
another attempt to call attention to the colonial condition of Puerto Rico
and to the contamination on the island of Vieques!!
As many of you remember, Tito Kayak was responsible for hanging the Puerto
Rican and Vieques flags from the Statue of Liberty on November 2001. Tito
was sentenced to jail for this act of civil disobedience and served his time
in New York City and Puerto Rico.
This latest civil disobedience took place during the United Nations
De-Colonization Hearings, as a delegation from Puerto Rico and throughout
the United States testified for the liberation of Puerto Rico from U.S.
colonialism. Tito was released from prison on Tuesday June 14th; Tito has a
hearing on Thursday Sept. 8th!! Tito could be facing 3-7 years for his
charge and 90 days for trespassing!!
Tito needs our support!! Take the day off from Work!! We have to pack the
court house and make sure that this brother receives justice!!
