SAVE THE DATE MARCH 22
Day of Action: Breaking the Chains of Puerto Rican Debt
On the anniversary of the abolition of slavery in Puerto Rico, join VAMOS4PR to stand with your neighbors to demand that Puerto Rico’s decision-makers defend the interests of the people, not of the banks that created this crisis. Hundreds of schools have closed, health care has been crippled and pensions are at risk because of the public debt crisis that has chained its people to misery.
Join us on March 22
Blame the Banks, Not the Workers

The actions will bring attention to the members of the Fiscal Control Board, an unelected body deciding the fate of Puerto Rico’s working families, making policies and mandates that Nobel Prize winner Joseph Stiglitz wrote “would turn Puerto Rico’s recession into a depression […] comparable to the experience of countries undergoing civil wars.”will affect the people for generations to come. We will also focus on banks and financial companies that are profiting from plunging Puerto Rico into a humanitarian crisis.
