Radio Vieques

For more than five decades, the U.S Navy used the Puerto Rican island of Vieques as a practice bombing range. Ten years after the Navy pulled out of the island, Viequenses struggle with health problems they say are caused by environmental toxins left by the bombings. That’s why artists from Puerto Rico are coming together to raise funds for Radio Vieques, a new community radio station that will inform Viequenses and help them navigate their future.
