URGENT Medical Campaign for Nina Droz Franco!


Puerto Rican Political Prisoner Nina Droz Franco is being denied

proper medical care!


According to Aurea Franco Diaz, Nina's mother, for the past two years Nina has not received any medical attention for her various conditions.  A few months ago, Aurea sent a letter to the Federal Bureau of Prisons pleading with the Bureau to help her daughter.  This plea has fallen on deaf ears. 

The ProLibertad Freedom Campaign is interceding and demanding that Nina receive the medical care she deserves.  We stand in solidarity with Aurea and her family.


Denying Nina proper medical care and mistreating her because of her political beliefs, actions, or affiliations are a violation of her Civil, Human, and International rights as a prisoner.  We won't stand for his egregious, cruel, and inhuman mistreatment.


Prior to her incarceration, Nina had several serious physical ailments which have only been aggravated by incarceration and lack of medical attention.

She requires a Ten Ide # 10 for her back treatment and inflamed lymph  nodes. She has not been prescribed this equipment, despite it being available at her institution.

Nina suffers from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, which has left her with constant arms cramps and numbness in her hands. These symptoms could easily be alleviated by immobilizing her wrists with a brace or splint, but she has yet to receive them.

Nina has five herniated discs, which cause her chronic back pain   In the past two years she has not received any therapy or treatment for this debilitating condition.  She urgently needs treatment and to permanently posses a lower bunk pass so she won’t have climb to her top bunk.
She cannot read nor see very well.  She needs an eye exam and a prescription from the ophthalmologist to acquire new eye glasses.

Nina is no longer receiving her mail.  Many people have sent Nina letters which she has not received.  This has caused her great emotional distress, which can further exacerbate her physical conditions.  Various prison based psychologists have insisted that receiving and responding to mail is both psychologically and emotionally beneficial to prisoners.    Losing contact with the outside world can cause depression and feelings of isolation, which are detrimental to a prisoner’s emotional well being.


The ProLibertad Freedom Campaign is calling upon our allies to stand in solidarity with Nina Droz Franco and her mother, who is desperately advocating on her behalf.  We've started a letter writing campaign directed towards Acting Director Hugh J. Hurwitz, of the Federal Bureau of Prisons, and are demanding that Nina receive the proper care she deserves. 


We need everyone to click the letter image below and download a PDF copy of the letter, sign it, and send it to:
