Citizens in Puerto Rico laid shoes at the San Juan capitol to represent lost loved ones not counted in the official government death toll. The number is estimated to be 4,645, the official US government number is 64.
You won’t see it in the news, but Puerto Rico just had a national strike. It was in protest of the federally imposed Fiscal Board. They want to take away education, health and pensions. The local government made sure to turn a peaceful protwst into a violent one. Senior citizens, children, students and teachers, that were there expressing themselves ran for their lives as cops closed in and threw tear gas at them.
Now, there are more extreme people protesting who caused trouble as well, but what has transpired today was deliberate by a suppressing government.
Our country is hurting, our country is crying. We are alone.
