7604 Charleston Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15218-1265, United States
Join us for the viewing of a great documentary, «Mi Puerto Rico».
We will also have a discussion an the history of the anti-colonial struggle of the Puerto Rican people who are a fighting people, with a history of centuries and centuries of resistance–from the warriors of the Taino and slave uprisings against colonialism to Pedro Albizu Campos to Lolita Lebron, to Oscar Lopez Rivera to today. Puerto Ricans have maintained a distinct culture despite all the attempts at disintegrating their national identity.
Struggles that have gone before show that under dire circumstances the people’s unity has strengthened. Puerto Ricans will endure another period of resistance after Hurricane Maria. And their thirst for independence still remains to be quenched.

Que viva Puerto Rico libre!
