elgritodelares

Today we joined with @peoplepowerlehman to let #Kingsbridge #Bronx and #lehmancollege community know about #elgritodelares and the Puerto Rican struggle for independence, the unity between Puerto Ricans, Dominicans, and Black people, and the capitalist crisis in Puerto Rico now! We also demanded the immediate release of #OscarLopezRivera and the independence of Puerto Rico! Viva Puerto Rico Libre!

Most importantly we must organize our communities here in Kingsbridge, The Bronx, and in the U.S. against racism, gentrification, privatization and closing of public schools and hospitals, police brutality, low wages, unemployment, rent and tuition hikes, and overall oppression, so that we can achieve Popular Control of our communities, Fundamental Social Change, and finally obtain a humane society. ALL POWER TO THE PEOPLE!

Many many thanks to Dr. Drum and #BombaYo for supporting our #ElGritoDeLares speakout in #Kingsbridge and sharing the power of Bomba y Plena, two traditional Puerto Rican drum-based music styles that descend from enslaved Africans on the island. It is the rhythm of Africa played through Afro-Boricua hands and spirits. Dr. Drum really came through for us, without him and his drum partner the action wouldn’t have been as powerful as it was. Support #DrDrum and #BombaYo in the #Bronx!! Viva #PuertoRico libre! #musicispower #peoplepower
