Over fifty organizations announced an official coalition in Puerto Rico, to oppose the imposition of a US “Financial Control Board” over the whole island.
Singer Danny Rivera, one of its leaders, denounced the Board as a scheme to “kick Puerto Ricans off our own island, so they can sell our country to the highest bidder.”
Union leaders, university professors, community and environmental activists, artists, students and lawyers are all part of this coalition…they are planning a major media campaign, and intensive labor organizing, in opposition to the Control Board.
