freedom happen!! We raised money, ate amazing Boricua Criolla, listened to
impassioned speakers, and got down with amazing poetry and music!!

Vieques Support Campaign
NO TO RACISM & IMPERIALIST WAR!
U.S. NAVY OUT OF VIEQUES & ALL OF PUERTO RICO!
- PLEASE FORWARD -
All out 4:30 p.m., on Tuesday, September 3rd in solidarity with the people
of Vieques, Puerto Rico. The U.S. Navy will resume its bombing destruction
of the island of Vieques on that day.
The U.S. Government plans to carry out its war against the world's oppressed
peoples by using the pretense of war against terrorism, this time against
the Iraqi people. Government officials are claiming that the Navy must
remain in Vieques in order to rehearse for the invasion of Iraq. We can only
conclude that the tragic events of September 11, 2001 are being used to
promote U.S. domination of the world.
President George W. Bush had hypocritically promised to withdraw the U.S
Navy from Vieques in 2003. Why is it hypocritical? Because he himself is
promoting the bombing of Iraq.
No one knows better than Puertoricans what the aims of the U.S warmongers
are. Puerto Rico is a completely controlled country under U.S. colonial
rule. Just as the people of Vieques who have suffered health epidemics as a
result of the U.S. Navy occupation on that island, all the people of Puerto
Rico have been denied the right to decide matters concerning their economic,
social and political life.
Puerto Ricans and all peace-loving people can make a difference - united we
can stop the criminal actions of military and government officials. Vieques,
Puerto Rico must not be used to bring about further death to the people of
