Last month, AgitArte shared the End the Debt! Decolonize! Liberate! scroll in several locations throughout the main island of Puerto Rico, in recognition of the one year anniversary of Hurricane María and the 150 anniversary of Grito de Lares. The tour included the home of Filiberto Ojeda Ríos, leader of Los Macheteros and Fuerzas Armadas de Liberación Nacional (FALN) who fought for Puerto Rico’s independence from the U.S. Filiberto was assassinated in his home in 2005 by FBI agents. Today, the house is still covered in bullet holes, the scars of U.S. oppression and the choking of liberation movements in Puerto Rico.
