Puerto Ricans in solidarity & unity with Black Lives Matter

“Así como mi Puerto Rico está de luto por las muertes injustificadas, por la desigualdad y la injusticia permanecemos con el puño en alto (como símbolo de solidaridad y unidad) conectando nuestros corazones a la comunidad negra en Estados Unidos y nuestros hermanos de Black Lives Matter”.

Puerto Rico esta de luto. Cobra vida la protesta ante el lente fotográfico. Part.2

This picture symbolizes Puerto Rico in mourning with the current economic crisis, the implementation of a Fiscal Board, the fumigation of our island with  Insecticide Naled, the murders that occur daily, racism that still exists, the lack of jobs, just to mention some …and we are also mourning for all of our Black brothers & sisters in the USA that have been unjustly killed by the police.
