400,000 Puerto Ricans Flood Streets to Demand Governor Resign Immediately

by Jake Johnson, The Anti Media:

Hours after Gov. Ricardo Rosselló resisted calls to step down over messages mocking victims of Hurricane Maria and attacking fellow politicians with misogynistic slurs, an estimated 400,000 Puerto Ricans took to the streets Monday and demanded Rosselló’s resignation in what was described as one of the largest protests in the island’s history.

“The people have spoken,” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), whose mother was born in Puerto Rico, tweeted in response to video footage of Puerto Ricans flooding miles of the Las Américas highway.
