 APRIL 24: CANCEL THE DEBT 

Puerto Rican activists in the US diaspora will hold a day of action in cities across the country on April 24th, the same day Judge Laura Taylor Swain will hold a hearing to address the $6 billion that the Fiscal Control Board declared "invalid" and in violation of the Puerto Rico Constitution.

 

Activists will demand that Congress hold the Financial Management and Oversight Board (FOMB) accountable and urge them to go after the institutions that profited from the issuance of this debt before, May 2nd, the day when these cases are no longer pursuable!

WHAT WE DEMAND 

We demand that:

  • The board hold the banks that created a profit from this illegal debt, accountable;

  • Judge Swain cancel the $6 billion of debt the FOMB declared “illegal”;

  • No debt to be paid while Puerto Rico is still recovering from the devastating effects from hurricane Maria and years of vulture driven austerity;

  • All Puerto Rican debt be audited and any debt that was issued illegally be cancelled.
