Free Leopoldo Lopez!

US President Barack Obama called on Tuesday for the release of Venezuelan opposition leader Leopoldo López, and underscored the work of Berta Soler, head of Cuban dissenting organization Ladies in White. The statement was issued during a speech at the Clinton Global Initiative. "We stand in solidarity with those who are detained at this very moment," noted the US president as reported by AP. "In Venezuela, Leopoldo Lopez," said Obama before referring to other leaders in prison in places such as Burundi, Egypt, China, and Vietnam. "They deserve to be free. They ought to be released."
