Eyewitness participant report with Giovanni Roberto of the Comedores Sociales de Puerto Rico and Centro de Apoyo Mutuo in Caguas, Puerto Rico.

It's been more than eigth months since Hurricane Maria and although the crisis in Puerto Rico has left the headlines of the mainstream US press, the struggle continues. Thousands of people on the island still do not have electricity and life has changed fundamentally. As the governor and the rich make moves to profit from Puerto Rico's crisis, there is a movement being born from below of self-organization and against the further privatization of the island's vast resources. 

Come hear Giovanni Roberto, one of the founders of the Comedores Sociales (Community Kitchens) movement and the Centro de Apoyo Mutuo (Mutual Aid Center) in Puerto Rico speak about the economic and political background the crisis spurred by hurricane Maria as well as the new movements being born in response.
