Understanding the Humanitarian Crisis in Puerto Rico

August 19, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Entendiendo la Crisis Humanitaria en Puerto Rico
(Espanol abajo)

Join the Chicago Boricua Resistance in a conversation about the Puerto Rican economic and humanitarian crisis. Together, we will unravel, with an anticapitalist and decolonizing lens, all the information that has been spread around Puerto Rico’s crisis. We also aim, after this educational and enriching conversation, to have a discussion around the possible solidarity actions and work against the Fiscal Control Board from Boricuas, Diasporicans and other allies in Chicago.

Topics to be covered in the conversation:
–U.S. Human Rights Abuses in Puerto Rico
–Origin of the Debt
–PROMESA and Neoliberalism
–Who is mobilizing in the island?
–What can we do from the diaspora?
