US Congressman recommends selling 3,100 acres of Vieques to “private developers”

Who holds the future of Puerto Rico in their hands?
Rob Bishop wants to sell & James Inhofe want to bomb … VIEQUES!
“The Vieques Wildlife Refuge is the fourth-most popular wildlife refuge in the U.S. and all its territories.”

Do we have to fight this fight AGAIN?? Arrghh ..


Book - 12-10

U.S. Congressman Rob Bishop (GOP – Utah) wants to sell 3,100 acres of Vieques to U.S. private developers, for “economic development” projects that will somehow benefit Puerto Rico.

According to Bishop, this land transfer to U.S. developers will help Puerto Rico with its $72 billion fiscal crisis…

The Vieques Wildlife Refuge is the fourth-most popular wildlife refuge in the U.S. and all its territories.

However, Rep. Bishop did not consider this to be relevant. As part of the so-called PROMESA bill for Puerto Rico, which will send a Financial Control Board to manage the island’s economy, this “Vieques land transfer initiative” was included.


For many years, Congressman Bishop has pursued a much larger plan, to sell off major pieces of U.S. parks to private developers…all across the U.S. continent. This questionable judgment has been opposed by environmental groups all over the country.
