Tonight we will be talking about Puerto Rico, or Borinquen, the island’s indigenous name. We will discuss the current social and political situation … how we got where we are, and what’s next.
On tonight’s show …
… We will learn some historical facts about the relationship between the U.S. government and Puerto Rico.
… We will go over the concept of disaster capitalism as defined by Naomi Klein in her 2007 book The Shock Doctrine, the rise of disaster capitalism and why is it important to understand Borinquen’s situation.
… We will speak with defend Puerto Rico’s activist Khalil Jacobs Fantauzzi about Puerto Rico before and after Hurricane Maria and how disaster capitalism has been manifested by the powers at play.
… We will learn about what’s happening at the University of Puerto Rico, and how organizations on the island are generating responses to the crisis.
All that tonight on Full Circle.
