There is a lot of controversy about Puerto Rico and its political status. Are they a country? Is it a colony? Are they a state? People also wonder what all the protests are about. Today we bring in a Chicago based group called Chicago Boricua Resistance that is hoping to answer those questions and bridge the gap between Boricuas on the island and in the mainland. Topics include:
- What is the Chicago Boricua Resistance?
- The Promesa Bill and Fiscal Board that controls many decisions on the island.
- Brief breakdown of the Puerto Rican Independence Movement
