Sacrifice Without Hesitation Luis Rosa Perez Part 2

Luis Rosa Perez is a former US held Puerto Rican political prisoner of war. He served almost 20 in US prisons for fighting to free Puerto Rico from the colonial relationship it’s had with the US since 1898. In 1999 a group of Puerto Rican political prisoners and prisoners of war were given clemency by President Clinton. Luis Rosa Perez was among them. Sacrifice Without Hesitation is his story. This is part two of an ongoing weekly documentary web series.

Part 2
In this episode Luis talks about his experiences as a political prisoner and how the prison system unsuccessfully tried to use that to pit him against the other prisoners. He speaks about maintaining his empathy and humanity in a place designed to strip a person of both. Luis also recounts his state and federal trials and how he refused to participate in them as a young man of 19 years of age.
