Hurricane Maria

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.
