Nice! Thanks for the informative write up. Having a 3 way split sure must make some interesting debates and cooperations. Would you have any recommended reading in regards to PR independence in the current era?

Nice! Thanks for the informative write up. Having a 3 way split sure must make some interesting debates and cooperations. Would you have any recommended reading in regards to PR independence in the current era?

The current era independence movement starts with Pedro Albizu Campus and the Puerto Rican Nationalist Party (PNPR). Albizu Campos became president of the PNPR in the 40s, just in time for the Cold War and the Red Scare. The FBI and the local government persecuted their members because they tended to lean towards communism. That is a contributing factor to the low votes independence and the PIP usually get.

The Wikipedia page on the independence movement is well sourced, and sounds quite correct. There’s also this primer which explains the independence alternative and its reality a little closer to our time.

As for books, I’ll have to look for which ones I read when I was younger. These are all in Spanish, I’m afraid.
