Puerto Rican People’s Parade founded


    1978 The Puerto Rican People’s Parade, organized as a cultural protest against the assassination of the two young Puerto Ricans in 1977, frames the Puerto Rican cultural experience within the language of social criticism and the discourse of possibilities. This parade is held in the heart of the Puerto Rican Barrio, and comes to raise issues such as freedom for our political prisoners, the removal of the U.S Navy from Vieques, and Puerto Rican self-determination.
