Luis Oyola will be hosting a slide show presentation at the Wingnut Anarchist Collective on Wednesday December 28th at 5:30pm on certain highlights of the decolonization struggles in Puerto Rico, as well as expansions of repression in the island.
It will by no means be, or pretend to be, a full objective history of Puerto Rico. There are many interwoven struggles going on dealing with labor, housing, ecological destruction, gender violence, education, etc., and so it’s impossible to give each their deserved attention within an hour-long event. There is also plenty material coming from a purely factual stance elsewhere.
This story will start from the Real Cedula de Gracias in 1815, and will cover various struggles up until the adoption of the ELA constitution in 1952, through the history of the Macheteros, and a spotlight on three big events of the past decade: the fight against US Navy occupation of Vieques, the assassination of Filiberto Ojeda, and the 2010 UPR strike.
The Wingnut Anarchist Collective is located at 2005 Barton Avenue. The Wingnut hosts sober, all ages events. You can get in touch by phone 804 303 5449, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
