It’s been more than four months after Hurricanes Irma and Maria hit Puerto Rico, or Borinquen, the island’s indigenous name. You might be wondering how things are over there, so on tonight’s show:
We will update you on how disaster capitalism measures continue to unfold. We will speak with Raul Garcia from earthjustice.org about the role of US Congress and its agencies in Borinquen’s failed disaster relief.
And we will learn about what Borinquen really needs, what has been done by Boricuas on the island, and what can you do to support them.
