The Puerto Rican Parade in New York is expected to draw more than one million people. This year’s event will be led by a group honoring the Puerto Rican nationalist hero Don Pedro Albisu Campos. They will be followed by a delegation from Vieques, many of whom were arrested in the last month protesting the US Navy’s bombing of the island. One young activist goes to court today for running out on the field during a game at Yankee stadium and unfurling a banner against the bombing.

Guest:

  • Hector Rosario, Ph.D. student in mathematics at Dartmouth College. He plans to begin a hunger fast outside the White House next June 14. Call: 212.923.0387.
