WAR AGAINST ALL PUERTO RICANS

War Against All Puerto Ricans: Revolution and Terror in America’s Colony

Monday June 8, 6-9 pm.

Camaradas El Barrio in New York, New York

2241 First Avenue (115th Street & 1st Avenue, in East Harlem)

The Camaradas event will cover the dramatic 1950 Nationalist revolt including: the assault on  La Fortaleza, the attack on Blair House and Pres. Harry Truman, the bombing of Jayuya and Utuado, the gunfight of Salón Boricua, the arrest of 3,000 Puerto Ricans, and the siege of Don Pedro Albizu Campos.

We will present War Against All Puerto Ricans within the broader context of New York City politics, the Nuyorican diaspora, and the growing debate over the political status of Puerto Rico.

We will discuss the role of our federal elected officials, and political parties in Puerto Rico, with respect the ongoing political status question in Puerto Rico. 

A special emphasis will be devoted to the Cabotage Law in Puerto Rico (Section 27 of the Merchant Marine Act of 1920), Balzac v. Porto Rico

About Dr. Rex

I'm originally from Puerto Rico. I was born in Santurce and raised in Rio Piedras. Have lived in Florida since 1999. I have a doctorate degree in Medicine; completed in 1976. My Internal Medicine specialty was completed in 1979. Worked for Puerto Rico's health system until 1985. At this time, I'm happily retired after working for the federal government for almost 28yrs. I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone "out there" who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is "eclectic" - a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I'm interested in news reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse - the "wrongly" affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I'm open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one .... since we ALL are ONE!! The future looks bright and promising!!!
