The ProLibertad Freedom Campaign
Every year, ProLibertad sponsors an event during November, Puerto Rican Heritage month, as a reminder of our rich heritage/history/legacy of struggle and resistance to U.S. Colonialism. This year we are sponsoring, "Remembering the Vieques Struggle." Many people thought the struggle was over when the Navy stopped bombing on May 1st, 2003, but in reality the movement had just only begun! Join us for a night of conversation and agitation!
