Black Monday (Chaos in the Colony Pt. 4)

There was a police riot late this afternoon at the UPR Rio Piedras campus. After peacefully demonstrating in the Natural Sciences building, the police began to isolate certain students and arrest them violently. Preliminary estimates are that 17 were arrested, some injuries, one known in Auxilio Mutuo Hospital. Radio Huelga reports a text from a student who said he was being driven around in a police van and beaten. The students have been denied access to lawyers.

This is a day of shame for a government that purports to align itself with Christian values. Shame on them for initiating violence at a time when people are gathering to celebrate love and peace.
