Grito Trunco

All over the Americas, countries such as the US, Mexico and others celebrate their Independence Days with pride.

What do Puerto Ricans celebrate? We celebrate the anniversary of a failed coup. We celebrate the time when Spain squashed a dream. We also conmemorate the day when, one-hundred and thirty-seven years later, a US federal agency decided to dispense justice by their own hands, bypassing such inconveniences as due process and offers of voluntary surrender.
