SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico – Early reports from mainstream news sources (1, 2) suggest no serious clashes took place between students on strike and police. Strikers began early in the morning at the gates of the Rio Piedras, and by mid-day they began marching through campus. Strikers released smoke bombs in buildings to try and clear buildings of students. Reports indicate that windows at the student center were smashed as well. The governor is condemning the property destruction as violent and claims the student leaders have failed in their responsibility to repudiate violent tactics. The marchers left campus some time around 2pm, around the same time as the police “shock” force. More updates to come later.
