March 20, 2018 …. “🇵🇷 Six Months after Hurricane María …. Puerto Rico is still Hurting 🇵🇷 ….”!!


SIX MONTHS AFTER MARIA

RedLineB~~March 19, 2018~~ 

In September 2017, Hurricane María devastated Puerto Rico, compounding the humanitarian crisis already underway due Puerto Rico’s fast-moving economic crisis and decades of limited democratic powers.

March 20th will be the 6 month anniversary of Hurricane Maria’s landfall, but the disastrous response by the US Federal Government has been more devastating and damaging than the Hurricane itself. Hundreds of Puerto Rican families displaced by the Hurricane, joined by allies and activists, are coming to Washington to remind Congress and the White House that the crisis is not over:

#6monthsafterMaria and 300,000 have been displaced from the island
#6monthsafterMaria and 500,000 people still have no electricity
#6monthsafterMaria and thousands have no potable water
#6monthsafterMaría and thousands have no roof over their head
#6monthsafterMaría and Congress has allocated only a fraction of the 90 billion dollars needed for Puerto Rico to recover and thrive, while continuing to put fiscal control of the island in the hands of the bankers and hedge funds that created and continue to benefit from Puerto Rico’s debt crisis.

Join us and hundreds of other activists who stand in solidarity with Puerto Rico and demand Congress finally do their job and provide a just recovery & voice in deciding the future of Puerto Rico!

#6monthsafterMaría y la lucha continua!

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!!!
