  • AOC supports the 'decolonization process' of Puerto Rico following governor's resignation

People march together as they celebrate the ouster of Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rossello in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico.

This brings an end to a political stand-off with tens of thousands of Puerto Rican protesters who demanded he leave after sexist, homophobic and offensive text messages that he exchanged with his inner circle were made public. The embattled governor said he would stay in his position until 2 August after which the Puerto Rico secretary of justice, Wanda Vázquez, would take over.

In a statement from Brad Dean, CEO of Discover Puerto Rico, said that flights, ports, hotels, airports, restaurants, shops, attractions and taxis are operating normally.

"I will continue my work in Congress educating and reminding my colleagues that Congress has been complicit in the economic issues of Puerto Rico and the other territories, including my own islands of the Virgin Islands of the United States". Guaynabo Mayor Angel Perez Otero spoke to the governor and explained that the government's paralysis would have grave consequences for the island economy.

Elle a alors été ramenée à son logement par ses parents, avant d'être examinée par un membre du staff médical du parc national. Elle se tenait avec ses parents, à moins de deux mètres du Bison .

"The message Puerto Rico said to the world was loud and clear", said State Representative Christopher Rosario as he addressed the crowd.

"I indicated to the governor that it was time", said Otero, a member of Rossello's party.

Her brother Residente also calls the protests an "awakening". "We need to get out of this morass because the people of Puerto Rico have endured too much".

What transpired prior to Rossello's announcement was the culmination of reactionary outrage and pent-up frustration of how Puerto Ricans felt about their government for decades. Historically, Ramos said voters elected parties based on family history, not necessarily having the right candidate with the right values.
