The University of Puerto Rico’s administration is blocking @DialogoUPR’s journalists from having access to the outlet’s webpage and social media. It also fired director @Viktor_Rodz.

This is an attack on freedom of the press. For shame, @UPR_Oficial. #DiálogoAbierto
For the past 30 years, @DialogoUPR has been editorially independent. Now the @UPR_Oficial is planning to hack its budget and restructure the outlet, without once consulting the editorial team or the student community. #DiálogoAbierto
We need @DialogoUPR’s reporting on the issues of @UPR_Oficial and Puerto Rico now more than ever.

Post-Maria and right in the middle of a debt crisis, we need this team to hold people in power accountable. #DiálogoAbierto

Update: It’s not only that @DialogoUPR’s journalists don’t have access to the outlet’s platforms. It’s that @UPR_Oficial didn’t renew any of their contracts. The administration is effectively killing Diálogo.

This is a fucking disgrace. #DiálogoAbierto

So you get a sense of @DialogoUPR's work: Last month they published this investigation into how the dean of the UPR's Humacao campus gave special contracts to acquaintances, used official vehicles out of business hours and was absent from his own classes.

What the current @UPR_Oficial administration wants is a public relations firm. That's not what @DialogoUPR is or has even been. Its purpose for the past three decades has been to serve the UPR community by reporting fairly and holding people accountable. #DiálogoAbierto
