Car Caravan Protest for Puerto Rico

Saturday July 25, 2020 at 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm | Fairhill Square


Join us this Saturday, July 25th as we look back on 122 years of US imperialism in Puerto Rico and say Basta Ya!

Philly Boricuas and the Party for Socialism and Liberation are organizing a car caravan protest that will drive through the heart of North Philadelphia to raise awareness in our community about Puerto Rico’s history and feature a variety of community leaders speaking out on issues like Puerto Rico’s debt, US imperialism, crime and violence in our neighborhoods, poverty, and decolonizing Puerto Rico.

The caravan will meet at Fairhill Square Park at 2pm continue to stop at 5 sites in Puerto Rican neighborhoods. Once we reach our final stop at Las Parcelas we will have a Speak Out on Puerto Rico and celebration led by Los Bomberos de la Calle to honor our fellow Boricuas who have dedicated their lives to Liberation.

Join us and bring your PR flags, signs, noise makers, and vehicles!
