Artists for Vieques
WVQR 90.1 FM - Radio Vieques
In 2013, Willie Nelson & Family, Calle 13, Los Lonely Boys, Zoraida Santiago and recordings artists from Puerto Rico and Austin, Texas helped build a public radio station on Vieques Island off the eastern coast of Puerto Rico.
The island of Vieques is not recovering from Hurricane Maria.
The international campaign against the use of Vieques as a US Naval bombing range ended in 2010.
The people of Vieques are suffering from the hurricane's devastation and distribution of highly contaminated toxic waste that the US military never cleaned up.
“Artists for Vieques” benefits WVQR - 90.1 FM, a full power public radio station broadcasting for peace, environmental justice, human rights and cultural diversity.
