PUERTO RICAN OUTRAGE

 

By Black Radio Network Staff

      NEW YORK - Protesters Sunday in Manhattan held a silent march to bring awareness to the devastation people are still facing in Puerto Rico, one year after Hurricane Maria slammed the island.

      "I believe that silence speaks volumes. It roars, it's deafening, and it's scary," organizer Carmen Cruz said. "The white because we come in peace, we come with faith, and we come with hope."

      The group, dressed in all white, held signs and marched silently from East Harlem to Midtown at the same time protesters held simultaneous marches in Mayaguez, Vieques, and San Juan. It's a way to show solidarity between Puerto Ricans who live here in New York and those who live on the island.

      The silent march came on the heels of recent controversies over the exact death toll as a result of the storm. A George Washington University study revised the island's official death toll to nearly 3,000 people, but President Donald Trump has repeatedly denied the scope of the damage, claiming only 64 people were killed. Many advocates say they believe the death toll is actually much higher than 3,000.
