San Juan Protesters Face Off With Police During Demonstration Against Puerto Rico Governor
Police and protesters clashed in San Juan, Puerto Rico, on July 15, as citizens took to the streets to demand that Governor Ricardo Rosselló resign in the wake of leaked messages between Rosselló and his officials, according to local reports.The messages included misogynistic and homophobic slurs, discussion of strategies on how to quell journalists and investigators unfavorable to Rosselló’s administration, and unsavory jokes about Hurricane Maria, the Center for Investigative Journalism in Puerto Rico reported. The outlet initially broke the story, sharing conversations from a Telegram chat.In an appearance on the radio show Nación Z on Monday, Rosselló spoke about “tough conversations” he had with his mother and wife, and offered an apology to the women of Puerto Rico who may have been offended by the messages. “I made a mistake,” he said. Rosselló has said he will not resign and will continue to work for Puerto Rico, according to reports.Police said ten officers were injured when protesters threw objects such as bottles and stones during the protest Monday night. They reported that four people were arrested for throwing objects.Local reports said police fired tear gas and rubber bullets at the protesters, and protesters set several trash cans on fire.Video filmed by Dariel Cortes shows a woman standing between a large crowd of protesters and a group of police on Calle Fortaleza addressing the crowd with her back turned to the police.The video shows a projectile fired from the group of police and the woman clutching her back. Protesters are then seen throwing objects at police. Other videos from Cortes show police pushing back protesters using tear gas, and protesters moving a street barricade.
