The Global African
Climate Awareness
Update on Puerto Rico

Video is courtesy of The Global African & teleSUR

A unique tour bus of musicians, actors, activists
and poets have been touring major cities to bring
awareness of climate change’s disproportionate
affect on people of color. We talk to organizers and
participants of this bus tour. In our last segment on
Puerto Rico's debt crisis, we touched on the factors
that led to its decade­long recession, population
loss and the neoliberal factors causing the Caribbean
Island's decade­long recession. We get an update on
the situation in the commonwealth. The Global
African host Bill Fletcher explores these stories with
Rev. Graylan Hagler, Pastor at Plymouth Congregational
United Church of Christ, and Frank Charnas, CEO
and co­founder of Afrique Consulting. Editorial Board member and Columnist, Bill Fletcher, Jr., is the host of The Global African on Telesur-English, a Senior Scholar with the Institute for Policy Studies, the immediate past president of  TransAfricaForum, and the author of “They’re Bankrupting Us” - And Twenty Other Myths about Unions. He is also the co-author of Solidarity Divided: The Crisis in Organized Labor and a New Path toward Social Justice, which examines the crisis of organized labor in the USA. Other Bill Fletcher, Jr. writing can be found at Contact Mr. Fletcher and BC.
