 Querid at s Compañeras y Compañeros


El sábado 26 de octubre tuvimos la oportunidad como representante del
Comité Pro Rescate Y Desarrollo de Vieques el honor de participar en
el Vieques Walk-A-Thon en NY. Esta caminata por sectores importantes
de la ciudad de NY nos permitió a la delegación viequense ver el
inmenso apoyo que tiene nuestra lucha en la ciudad de NY. En nuestro
caminar sentimos la expresión de solidaridad de personas que desde su
edificios nos saludaban, en las calles nos aplaudían, en los negocios
y tiendas salian a gritar las mismas consignas que nuestro grupo
gritaba.

Es claro que la comunidad boricua y latina ha hecho suya nuestra
lucha. Pero ese apoyo a la lucha viequense ha sido el resultado de
todo un trabajo desarrollado por las distintas organizaciones en la
ciudad de NY. No hay duda que el pueblo viequense tiene una gran
deuda con la comunidad boricua y con las demas nacionalidades que se
han sumado a este reclamo.

Nuestro agradecimiento a todas las organizaciones que pudieron hacer
posible la actividad del Vieques Walk-A-Thon. Por habernos permitido
compartir con ustedes esa gran experiencia y ver ese gran apoyo que
fue demostrado en todo el caminar. Gracias compañeros y compañeras
porque como sabemos el triunfo será nuestro. Y no habrá triunfo sino
luchamos.

 Por el Comité Pro Rescate y Desarrollo de Vieques,

 Zuleika Sánchez

 Dear Sisters and Brothers


On Saturday, October 26, we had the opportunity as representatives of
the Committee for the Rescue and Development of Vieques and the honor
of participating in the Vieques Walk-A-Thon in New York City. This
walkathon by important sectors of the New York City community allowed
us, a delegation of people from Vieques, to see the great support
that our struggle has in New York. During our walk we felt the
expressions of solidarity of people who greeted us from their
buildings, who applauded on the streets and who, from their stores
and businesses came out to shout the same demands and chants which
our groups was voicing.

It is clear that the boricua and latino community has made our
struggle their own. But that support for the Vieques struggle has
been the result of all the work developed by the different
organization in the city of New York. There is no dobut that the
people of Vieques have a great debt with the Puerto Rican community
and with all the nationalities that have joined with us in our
demands.

Our gratitude goes out to all the organizations which made the
Vieques Walk-A-Thon activity possible. We were able to have the
opportunity to share this great experience with you and to see the
great support which was demonstrated throughout the walk.

Thank you brothers and sisters because we know that the final victory
will be ours and there will be no victory without struggle.

On behalf of the Committee for the Rescue and Development of Vieques,

 Zuleika Sánchez
 Ismael Guadalupe Ortiz
