My article in @jacobin on the #SummitAmericas fiasco. In response to Latin American & Caribbean disgruntlement with the 🇺🇸 exclusion of 🇨🇺🇻🇪🇳🇮, the Biden administration is now in full damage control mode. But will this be enough to appease the hemisphere?

Late to the party, but if you haven’t read @yarimarbonilla’s recent op-ed in the NYT please do so. In the piece, she emphasizes the completely arbitrary nature of colonial rule that Puerto Ricans, especially those in the archipelago, are forced to endure. https://twitter.com/nytopinion/status/1527254592513355776
