Livestream: Will broadcast on the Puerto Rico Tribunal Facebook page at 9am, October 27

The Tribunal will be a critical and urgently needed step forward in building a broader solidarity movement with the struggle of the people of Puerto Rico on an international platform. A broad range of organizations representing the major social struggles of the day have endorsed and will be attending on October 27.

Here are just a few of the many reasons why the Tribunal will be such a significant convening:

Hear evidence and testimony from social movements and others from Puerto Rico on the impacts of 120 years of U.S. colonialism, and the imposition of the Fiscal Control Board (PROMESA Law) that is looting the country. Testimonies will be offered that expose the U.S.’s role in promoting racism, forced sterilization and violence against women, environmental destruction, and more.
We will be joined by a panel of jurists representing struggles from across the globe - more soon on some of the members of the people’s jury.

The proceedings will be broadcast live across the world. Following the People’s Tribunal, we will publish evidence, documentation, videos, and the findings of the day as an aid to the struggle in solidarity with the people of Puerto Rico.
