Soraida's Verdadism Painting on Vieques and The US Military's Bombing of this Puerto Rican Island
VIEQUES: Hello...Hello USA...Are you there?
"It is appalling to me that bomb testing continues in Vieques. What type of a message is the US government sending to the Puerto Rican
people...that we are not valued as human beings? All people should get involved in this matter; it is not just a Puerto Rican issue; it is a
human rights issue. Puerto Ricans in the United States: let's wake up...we need to take action...it is very insulting to me and it should
be to you. We need to voice our opinion on this matter. Human rights organizations: where are you? Environmentalists: is this any concern
to you? This is happening right now."
