Disaster capitalism hits Puerto Rico. PROMESA, the board appointed by Congress to oversee Puerto Rico’s economy, is calling for, among other things, the privatization of the school system and a 10% cut to pensions. On May Day citizens turned out to protest. From the streets of San Juan we have a report filed by Democracy Now! correspondent Juan Carlos Dávila.
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.
