A coalition of Chicago’s Puerto Rican activists and supporters spoke in protest against the crisis of delayed aid for their stricken homeland island. The historic catastrophe is not only the result of hurricane Maria, but of U.S. colonial neglect and exploitation. Interviews and speeches at this emotional event on 9/20/17 force us to look behind the facade of ‘disaster relief’ erected by the media and the government.
