Aaron Maté of the Real News discusses with labor leader Hector Figueroa the impact of Puerto Rico’s economic debt on the recovery efforts in the aftermath of hurricanes Irma and Maria. Figueroa presents the case that Puerto Rico needs to be given the same consideration as was given AIG, Lehman Bros. and the big Wall Street banks that were bailed out. “We need a Marshall Plan for Puerto Rico the same way we did have a Marshall Plan for the European countries after World War II.”
We at San Diego Free Press love watching all kinds of video. Those short visual stories entertain, inform, and agitate in a way completely different from the written word.
Since our platform is about expressing ideas and ideals instead of cash flow, clicks, or fundraising, we have the freedom to include a wide range of topics and formats that might not work elsewhere. We don’t need or want paid content, promotional materials, or story lines designed to please donors.
So the idea here is to present videos one or more of the editors feel speaks to them. Sometimes it will be news. Sometimes it will be history. And a lot of the time it will be culture. You can not and should not separate these things: it is diversity and intersectionality that makes our movement strong.
