“No, not many people come here since the military left. Some people here on
Vieques did not like the military being here because they thought the military
interfered too much. That caused many strangers and political agitators to come
from the main island of Puerto Rico and demonstrate against the military. Myself, I
liked the military very much and I made a good living working for them when they
were here. Now, I have to fish the coves and try to grow some cows and chickens.

works of the Almighty, ever moving and so very colorful. They are unrestricted by

without anyone bothering us, to be able to work, without anybody dictating to you,
without anyone saying "you have to do it this way" or "this is what has to happen
now" or "you have to go over there in order to get here". That's what's happening
now in Vieques, and that's a denial of human rights. It's the same both on the land
