Not one more cent for predatory lenders in Puerto Rico!
Fight for Independence and Socialism!
After nearly a decade of privatizations, cuts in services, and other neoliberal austerity measures which allegedly would serve to improve Puerto Rico’s credit rating and allow it to pay back its debt, governor Alejandro García Padilla recently recognized what we in the MST and other organizations of the people have been saying for years: that the colony’s debt is simply too massive and cannot be paid. However, rather than reaching the logical conclusion that it therefore should not be paid, and preparing the people to resist, García Padilla has concocted a toxic recipe for even more austerity.
