Marcos Vilar has worked for the release of Puerto Rican political prisoners for the past 11 years. For as long as he can remember, he has supported independence for Puerto Rico, which was invaded and conquered by the United States in 1898: "We must always teach our young people about our history, the repression against our people, and that this struggle is going to continue no matter what."
