Agricultural land in Cayey, Puerto Rico


CAYEY para el MUNDO450Supporters

Read more Just 70 years ago, Puerto Rico produced 70% of all the food consumed here. Today, we produce less than 10%. Modernization strategies based on foreign investment and our colonial relationship with the U.S. created a national economy of extreme dependence. Agricultural dependence is always dangerous. But Puerto Rico is particularly vulnerable. A chain of islands in the Caribbean, our storehouses are designed to hold just three days worth of food. If war, natural disaster or any other emergency interferes with the arrival of the ships that supply us, four million Puerto Rican people would face an unimaginably devastating crisis of starvation and violence.
