As public spaces + events are shut down due to the #coronavirus - the need for building mutual aid survival programs is now greater than ever, especially in the face of the dramatic failure of the State to respond to this crisis. Here's a thread for inspiration. #MutualAid
Last summer we talked to @simaleerbg of the @fcrcollective who organized a free store and free grocery program in #DC.
In #PuertoRico, for the past several years, people across the island have set up assemblies, squatted buildings, set up mutual aid community centers, and organized to carry out wide scale disaster relief in the face of hurricanes and earthquakes.

Video shared by @anibalacevedo today. Some context. It is from Aug. 26, 2019. It shows Carlos Acevedo, now former emergency director, clearly stating that the gov't has 5 warehouses with plenty of relief supplies. Who is next to him?
@wandavazquezg gov of #PuertoRico. Wow.
@anibalacevedo @wandavazquezg This video would clearly dispute the claim that @wandavazquezg, the governor of #PuertoRico, didn't know about these warehouses. She is LITERALLY right next to Acevedo.
@anibalacevedo @wandavazquezg Now Elmer Román, Sec of State for Puerto Rico (also in the video) is saying that this was never about warehouses existing, it is about how these supplies were not distributed during #PuertoRicoEarthquakes. He is blaming this all on Acevedo. You can't make this up.

🚨Informative Thread to Follow:

1/8 I have demanded all supplies be distributed today among residents in the affected towns, following the legal prosecution of those who deprived these vital supplies to our citizens during difficult times for everyone.
2/8 As I have said before, it is UNACCEPTABLE that people are being denied items that they need RIGHT NOW. Yesterday, our frustration brought about the need for an immediate explanation resulting in the removal of the Head of the Emergency Management Bureau.
3/8 The people of #Ponce —and #PuertoRico in general—deserve that the state and federal authorities, law and order agencies open an investigation into this inhuman atrocity, and that this investigation holds accountable those responsible.

🚨A continuación un hilo informativo:

1/8 He exigido que los suministros se distribuyan hoy mismo entre residentes de pueblos afectados, seguido del procesamiento legal a todos los que privaron a ciudadanos de estos suministros tan vítales en momentos tan difíciles para todos.
2/8 Como he dicho antes, es INACEPTABLE que se esté privando a la gente de artículos que necesitan AHORA MISMO.

Ayer, nuestra frustración generó la exigencia de una explicación inmediata y puntual resultando en la remoción del titular del Negociado de Manejo de Emergencias.
3/8 El pueblo de #Ponce —y #PuertoRico en general—merece que las autoridades, agencias de Ley y Orden estatales y federales, investiguen esta atrocidad que llega a lo inhumano y que de esta investigación resulte la penalización de quien haya sido el autor de esta infamia.

These govt officials are so sick and heartless and deserve to be locked up. Why did they not release the supplies to their people?

#PuertoRico #Qanon #WWG1WGAWORLDWIDE #GreatAwakeningWorldwide #PartyofCrime #DrainTheSwamp #LockThemAllUp
The Puerto Rico warehouse that was hiding the survival supplies from it's own people is up to 4 football fields big

Voter suppression by the GOP. In 2018, the American Indian was denied the right to Vote because of how & where they live on their reservations. I believe their reservations should unite to be the 51st or 52nd state of the U.S. /1…
This will give them 2 Senators & Representatives in Congress. There are 573 Federally Recognized Indian Nations in the U.S. And, 326 Indian reservations scattered throughout the U.S. They form a state, petition for admittance into the Union. /2
Even though states would claim "no new state shall be formed or erected within the jurisdiction of any other state." Taxes are not collected by those states on these reservations. This is the loophole. They propose statehood, vote on a State Constitution & collect taxes. /3

You may be thinking that #PuertoRico is getting a check for $8B soon. Here’s the truth behind what your hearing about “releasing" $8B in aid to #PuertoRico.

.@HUDgov made a Puerto Rico funding announcement earlier this week ONLY after months of being pressured by members of congress and advocates for #PuertoRico. That's bad enough, but here's the small print... #ReleaseThePRAid
.@HUDGov is NOT “releasing” $8 billion to #PuertoRico. It is simply activating a lengthy process to make the aid accessible by putting out a federal notice that the PR gov now has to respond to. #ReleaseThePRAid

#PuertoRico #USA #PuertoRicoEarthquakes

#PuertoRico still doesn't seem calm after so many #storms, and this Saturday there was a new 6.0 MI magnitude #earthquake on the momentum magnitude scale as part of a series of #aftershocks that have intensified since Friday night.
According to Prensa Latina, the meteorological phenomenon occurred in #Guánica, 14.87 kilometers south of #Peñuelas, at a depth of 5.04 kilometers.
On the other hand, the #NationalGuard of #PuertoRico considered declaring the island a #disaster area in order to receive additional funds after the #earthquakes.

¿Cuál es la diferencia entre la Declaración de Emergencia para Asistencia Federal Directa para #PuertoRico y la Declaración de Desastre Mayor firmada hoy por la gobernadora Wanda Vázquez? Abro hilo.👇🏼
#TemblorPR #PuertoRicoEarthquakes
El martes, el presidente de los Estados Unidos, @realDonaldTrump, firmó la Declaración de Emergencia para Asistencia Federal Directa, autorizando a @fema para asistir en las medidas de protección de emergencia (categoría B), bajo el programa de Asistencia Pública.
Estas medidas proveen asistencia para necesidades básicas como agua, catres y comida, y cubren en un 75% los gastos con fondos federales en los 78 municipios.

As a precautionary safety measure, in case of additional seismic activity in #PuertoRico, the water level at the #PortuguesDam is being lowered. #earthquakes (THREAD)
A team of USACE's engineers along with the Puerto Rico Department of Natural and Environmental Resources are conducting full site assessments at the dam in order to assess the status following a series of earthquakes, to include one of 6.4 magnitude earlier today. /2

#HowICameToClimate: I grew up in an activist fam. Mom was an elected official+attorney fighting police violence. As a teen I was active in the peace movement+witnessed much eco-activism connected to that (mostly white). In my 20s I did black community organizing.
In the early '00s, I co-faciltated a bunch of activist spaces w/ Van Jones+Julia Butterfly that connected racial+economic justice w/ eco activism. Back then, I was primarily an artist+occasional facilitator. Most of my energy went into making art that has strong social commentary
At the time, I wasn't part of any particular political organizations, but I had strong relationships with activists in many movements+folks knew they could call on me for different stuff: performing, teaching, facilitating. Folks commissioned me to write poems for their movements

hellohellohello! The #GivingTuesday thread is here! No shortage of causes to care about. Pick something that won’t leave you alone; then, volunteer, donate $, and/or advocate to your elected official. Here are some orgs that my family donates to:
Independent journalism is the backbone of any social movement & change. @cpipr does that & more for 🇵🇷.
The @cpipr investigation led to uncovering over 4k died as result of #HurricaneMaria; brought corrupt chats to public from the [now former!] Governor, ignited massive peaceful public protests until he resigned; every day they produce unbiased reporting.

1. Gobernadora @WandaVazquezG hablemos sobre la #JusticiaInfantil de PR y las violaciones de derechos contra niños desde 6 años cometidas esta semana y que se deben conocer @TorresGotay @ivettesosaT2 @GuardiolaTwitt @riverasaniel @MillyMendezpr @leoaldridgepr @ferdinandpr
@wandavazquezg @TorresGotay @ivettesosaT2 @GuardiolaTwitt @riverasaniel @MillyMendezpr @leoaldridgepr @ferdinandpr 2. Este lunes en Ponce, la Policía de Puerto Rico movilizó sus efectivos para iniciar una investigación contra tres niños, dos de 6 años y uno de 7, todos estudiantes que cursan el Segundo Grado en una escuela pública de Ponce; el motivo: una “pelea” entre niños #JusticiaInfantil
@wandavazquezg @TorresGotay @ivettesosaT2 @GuardiolaTwitt @riverasaniel @MillyMendezpr @leoaldridgepr @ferdinandpr 3. En la escuela, los policías que no son suficientes para investigar los asesinatos de gatilleros a plena luz del día, le leyeron las “advertencias” a los niños ante su cara de asombro, falta de entendimiento y susto, por no entender lo que estaba pasando #JusticiaInfantil

1. Here's the docket in Trump's new SDNY suit trying to get a federal judge to interfere in a NY state grand jury. District judge assigned is Victor Marrro, Clintion appointed senior status judge from #PuertoRico. Anti-Injunction Act should resolve it in short order as I recall.
3. Electronic copy of the complaint is not available on line. Yet.

1/9: Over the last 24 hours there have been large eastward shifts in #Dorian's track. It may now just clip #PuertoRico to the east! How?

Let's start with Dorian's vertical structure. One critical change is how vertically coherent Dorian's vortex has become, as seen below.
2/9: Here is another way to view it, this time from a lat-lon map. Over the last four GFS model cycles, the separation between the low & mid level centers of #Dorian decreases until they are on top of each other.

Correspondingly the low-level vortex migrates to the northeast.
3/9: Since #Dorian's vortex is more vertically stacked, it feels a deeper steering layer, moving it more north vs. the low-level flow.

Yesterday's 06z GFS run had a shallow vortex, & its steering was impacted by the low-level Caribbean trade winds (925-700-hPa) into #Hispaniola.

#Hawaii is turning up on settler colonialist violence. #PuertoRico is in the streets fighting against a corrupt government. There millions in the streets, elders.

I keep thinking about how we begged for the millions, the elders in the streets. & no one came. Y’all didn’t come.
I keep thinking about the children who left school in Ferguson, slept in a shopping plaza parking lot, because they believed in justice. They asked y’all to join them in the streets. You didn’t come.
As an organizer, I know that we did our best. We fought w/out sleep. Without food. W/no money.

There were so few people coming in droves to protests. There were so few celebrities flying in to St. Louis, Baltimore, Atlanta, etc. So few elders willing to lay in the streets w/us.
