Can there be an alternative approach to Puerto Rico’s statehood vs. status quo vs. independence divide? Latino Rebels Radio host Julio Ricardo Varela searches for answers with Jean René Santiago-Cruz and Victoria Rodríguez-Roldán of Estadistas MVC to explore a left-wing progressive stake regarding statehood.

NOTE: The views on the merits of the different status options from Jean René and Victoria are not representative of Movimiento Victoria Ciudadana (MVC). Estadistas MVC is an autonomous network that is affiliated with but not institutionally representative of MVC because Estadistas MVC’s coalescing element (statehood) is not shared by many MVC members (pro-independence and pro-sovereignty supporters).
