Ante la muerte de la luz.

La UPR se juega la vida. Puerto Rico se juega la vida. El estado colonial siempre le fue fiel a los intereses del capital y del imperio, y te convenció que lo hacía por tu bien. Si no despiertas ahora nunca lo harás. Ya todos somos encapuchados sin saberlo. Todos somos criminales. Maldita sea, isla …
