In case you have not been on top of the news in Puerto Rico, earthquakes have been ongoing in the south for around 18 days. Thousands are sleeping outside or in cars and many have lost their homes completely.
Today, supplies that were hoarded and stolen by the Mayor of Ponce were found neglected and left to rot in a warehouse. In addition, there were blankets and cots that could have been used to supply many of the people sleeping outside, as well as diapers that have been needed.
The people have had enough and are calling for a national strike in Puerto Rico on Monday.
In solidarity with the national strike, we are asking folks in the diaspora and our allies to mobilize against the colonial government.
Let us be clear. The issue wasn’t just Ricky. It is not just Wanda. It isn’t just Donald Trump. The issue is colonialism, and we must demand an end to this system of genocide. From the federal to the local puppet governments, enough is enough! The people have the power!
