Protestors in Puerto Rico take to streets after governor’s offensive comments

Published on : Saturday, July 20, 2019

After 800 pages of leaked chat logs revealing inflammable and offensive comments from Governor Ricardo Rosselló and his deputies, Puerto Ricans have taken to the streets of Old San Juan demanding his dismissal.

 

Demonstrations turned heated on Wednesday evening, when protestors overturned barricades and police fired tear gas into the crowds. The governor has refused to resign, and said, “I apologize for what I’ve done but again, I need to move forward and continue on the work we’re doing for Puerto Rico.”

 

Hence, in response to this unrest, Discover Puerto Rico, the island’s destination marketing organization, issued a statement which said that while travelers should avoid El Capitolio and Fortaleza, where protests are taking place, other areas of San Juan are untouched. While emphasizing that the island is “open for business,” they recommend travelers need to take precautions while traveling in Old San Juan.
