After Three Decades Behind Bars, Puerto Rican Nationalist Returns To Humboldt Park

For a moment late Thursday afternoon, it seemed like everyone in Humboldt Park had turned out to welcome home Puerto Rican nationalist Oscar Lopez Rivera, newly free after more than three decades in prison.

Posters proclaiming "Bienvenido" and Puerto Rican flags blanketed Division Street. A group played bomba music from a flag-festooned float. Dozens of students from a school Lopez helped found decades ago lined a walkway leading to La Casita de Don Pedro, a replica of a Puerto Rican home where supporters have hosted former Puerto Rican prisoners for years.
