Inktober 2- Repeal the Jones Act!
This is for all my Puerto Rican fam, but also it is a lesson in US Colonialism. In 1920 the law was imposed on the island of Puerto Rico makes it so folks in PR have to get goods brought to the island via US ships, which not only makes items more expensive for Boricua’s (Puerto Rican’s) but it lines the pockets of US corporations. This law was created after WW1 to keep the US from being attacked but that was nearly 100 years ago. If the US Govt doesn’t want to treat the people of PR like US citizens, they need to release their claws from the island and that starts w/ repealing this act. Although the idiot in the White House waived it temporarily, it is no where near getting the clutches of the US Govt as a colonialist power off of Puerto Rico where they have bombed, taxed, and exploited the people. If you would like to assist the people check out www.Defendpr.com for updates and information on how to advocate in the US.
