Psychedelic music from Puerto Rico 1968 to the present.
Did you know:
That Puerto Rico is STILL a U.S. colony? That citizenship was forced on Puerto Rican’s so the U.S. could enlist men for WWI? That along with Guam, the Philippines, and Cuba, the U.S. “won” Puerto Rico after the Spanish American war? That the U.S. totally fucked up P.R.’s economy by destroying their four product economy and exploiting their sugar industry through mainland owners that kept the money in the U.S. and paid the workers shit? That the U.S. had a worker recruitment and island industrialization program called Operation Bootstrap that increased island unemployment and, in the largest airborne migration, flew Puerto Rican’s to the mainland to work in factories and as domestic workers in Chicago homes? That U.S. doctors forced sterilization on women on the island when they came into the hospital to give birth? That Puerto Rican women were experimented on with the first birth control pills which contained more that 800% the amount of hormones of today’s birth control, an amount that made many permanently sterile (not to mention other health problems)?
Also, Oscar López Rivera, unlawfully imprisoned activist, has been released!
Did you know that Puerto Ricans make amazing psychedelia!?!!! Support the people, not the government. Buy records from the bands!
