Alyson Kennedy, the Socialist Workers Party candidate for U.S. president in 2016; Seth Galinsky, the SWP candidate for New York City public advocate; and Linda Joyce from Atlanta are heading to Puerto Rico Aug. 15 for five days to bring solidarity, report the truth in the Militant about the conditions working people face there and to learn about the fight that forced the resignation of Gov. Ricardo Rosselló.
They will talk to working people in San Juan as well as smaller towns like Humacao, Yabucoa and Naguado, where residents organized to confront the consequences of Hurricane Maria, which ravaged the island in 2016.
The delegation will bring their experience as participants in working-class struggles in the U.S. And they will take part in discussions on what is the road forward in the face of the crisis of capitalist and colonial rule.
When they return they will speak at forums, house meetings and anywhere they are invited, to explain why it is in the interests of workers of all nationalities in the U.S. to support the fight against U.S. colonial rule.
