Troops, your viewing assignment for the month of May is to watch the full-length film The Last Colony.
In 1898, the United States invaded and colonized Puerto Rico as part of the Spanish American War. For 114 years the people of Puerto Rico have maintained a polarizing debate on the Status Issue that has been front and center of the political discourse on the Island. Puerto Ricans (American citizens since 1917) constantly dispute between the options of Statehood, Independence and Commonwealth.
After you watch the film, email your thoughts and comments to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll review it on the last show of the month.
