Faculty Chat: Puerto Rico: Rebellion and Beyond

With protestors continuing to demonstrate in Puerto Rico, even after the resignation of former governor Ricardo Rosseló, BISR faculty Adriana Garriga-Lopez (whose course Ambiente, Feminismo y Descolonización recently concluded in San Juan, Puerto Rico) sat down with fellow faculty member Ajay Singh Chaudhary to discuss the shape and scope of the mass protest movement. What are its causes? What is the composition of the movement, and why have feminist, queer, and youth organizers played such a driving role? Beyond the resignation of former governor Ricardo Rosseló, what are the movement’s goals, and what can those outside of Puerto Rico do to demonstrate support and solidarity?
