A Human Rights Nightmare

The abuses:

- violence against student protesters, with students being beaten, maced, shot at with rubber bullets and sexually assaulted by police;

- the execution of a man lying on the ground following an argument with a police officer over a traffic violation;

- the fabrication of drug-related charges against over 100 residents of a housing project in the city of Mayaguez;

- the violent and inhumane eviction of members of the Villas del Sol squatter community, including the denial of fresh water to the community for eight months;

- the de-certification of the Puerto Rico Bar Association and legal action against bar members designed to stifle political dissent.

And this is happening... in Puerto Rico.
