• Why is Puerto Rico not part of the United States of America?

    Puerto Rico is an unincorporated territory of the United States of America? She sits in an in-between limbo, neither a state or an independent nation.

While 97% of those who participated in the referendum vote favored statehood, only 23% of the territory's population participated in the process. It was the lowest level of participation in any election in Puerto Rico since 1967. U.S. Congress makes the sole determination regarding any changes to Puerto Rico's political status. Puerto Rico is currently seeking the bankruptcy protections that statehood would likely provide – with $74 billion in debt and $4...

    https://democracynow.org - Six days after Hurricane Maria slammed into Puerto Rico, 3.4 million U.S. citizens in the territory remain without adequate food, water and fuel. But as the massive crisis became clear over the weekend, President Trump failed to weigh in, instead lashing out at sports players who joined in protest against racial injustice. It took the president five full days to respond, with comments that appeared to blame the island for its own misfortune. We examine the dire situation in Puerto Rico with Yarimar Bonilla, Puerto Rican scholar, who wrote in The Washington Post, "Why would anyone in Puerto Rico want a hurricane? Because someone will get rich." And we speak with Puerto Ricans in New York who have been unable to reach loved ones after nearly a week. Democracy Now!...

  • Puerto Rico's Protest Art Calls for the Island's Independence

    Street art in Puerto Rico has long channeled widespread frustrations about the island’s century-long status as a U.S. territory. The work of La Puerta is one such example. The anonymous collective voicing ideas of identity and politics exploded throughout San Juan over the last year, but now, their protest art might come at a cost. In May, the country’s penal code was amended to punish acts like disrupting school activity and painting on public walls with jail time. Human rights lawyer Ariadna Godreau-Aubert worries, “These new amendments are trying to implicate street art as well as every other kind of free speech activity against austerity and the government.” La Puerta’s street murals often advocate for the island’s independence, a political debate revived by the fiscal crisis.

Four days after Hurricane Maria swept across Puerto rico, rescue teams are only now reaching some of the more remote parts of the island. Euronews' partners NBC sent Gabe Gutierrez in with one of the rescue teams as it reached one isolated community. People who have lost everything bring everything they can carry, and that is mostly drinking water. Wading through rushing water, gripping onto downed power lines that have become lifelines, they have escaped their homes in Morovis, which was cut… READ MORE : http://www.euronews.com/2017/09/25/scale-of-rebuilding-puerto-rico-grows-as-teams-discover-extent-of-damage What are the top stories today?

While 97% of those who participated in the referendum vote favored statehood, only 23% of the territory's population participated in the process. It was the lowest level of participation in any election in Puerto Rico since 1967. U.S. Congress makes the sole determination regarding any changes to Puerto Rico's political status. Puerto Rico is currently seeking the bankruptcy protections that statehood would likely provide – with $74 billion in debt and $49 billion in unfunded pension liabilities. The Fall of Puerto Rico.

https://democracynow.org - Six days after Hurricane Maria slammed into Puerto Rico, 3.4 million U.S. citizens in the territory remain without adequate food, water and fuel. But as the massive crisis became clear over the weekend, President Trump failed to weigh in, instead lashing out at sports players who joined in protest against racial injustice. It took the president five full days to respond, with comments that appeared to blame the island for its own misfortune. We examine the dire situation in Puerto Rico with Yarimar Bonilla, Puerto Rican scholar, who wrote in The Washington Post, "Why would anyone in Puerto Rico want a hurricane? Because someone will get rich." And we speak with Puerto Ricans in New York who have been unable to reach loved ones after nearly a week.

The island of Puerto Rico (a U.S. territory) has been begging the mainland to send aid after they were smacked by back-to-back Category 5 hurricanes. Instead, Donald Trump ignored their plight for several days before Tweeting out insults aimed at the island for being massively in debt and not being able to make their infrastructure hurricane-proof. People are dying, and all Trump can do is insult them.

Street art in Puerto Rico has long channeled widespread frustrations about the island’s century-long status as a U.S. territory. The work of La Puerta is one such example. The anonymous collective voicing ideas of identity and politics exploded throughout San Juan over the last year, but now, their protest art might come at a cost. In May, the country’s penal code was amended to punish acts like disrupting school activity and painting on public walls with jail time. Human rights lawyer Ariadna Godreau-Aubert worries, “These new amendments are trying to implicate street art as well as every other kind of free speech activity against austerity and the government.” La Puerta’s street murals often advocate for the island’s independence, a political debate revived by the fiscal crisis. On June 11, a referendum took place where Puerto Ricans voted between statehood, free association/independence, and the status quo. Leading up to the vote, VICE News followed the La Puerta collective as they took to an expressway that’s become the go-to spot for their political messages.
