End the Debt! Decolonize! Liberate Movement Unity Scroll is a participatory cultural response to Hurricane Maria that tells the story of U.S. imperialism through the lens of the current economic and environmental state of Puerto Rico and its diaspora. The piece was developed between AgitArte and collaborators in the US and Puerto Rico, and is part of the arts and culture tour of the recently released book, When We Fight, We Win!: Twenty-First Century Social Movements and the Activists That Are Transforming Our World.
I worked on a core team for this project with Jorge Diaz Ortiz, Estefania Rivera, Emily Simons and Dey Hernández, with additional support and participation from Crystal Clarity, Osvaldo Budet, José Hernández and Saulo Colón. Here are some amazing videos Osvaldo made to tell the story of the project! (Parts 3 is my favorite…skip there for the quickest overview!)
