From Peñuelas to Standing Rock

The recent arrests of some 40 protesters in the area of Peñuelas, Puerto Rico, a small town on the southern coast of the US colony, brings to light yet another example of environmental degradation and indifference to the collective health of the poor which characterizes the capitalist profit system. Protesters were arrested last week as they attempted to block over 50 trucks loaded with carbon ash (Coal Combustion Residuals or CCRs) destined for a landfill managed by the Alabama-based company EC Waste located on the outskirts of Peñuelas. The carbon ash is generated at a coal-fired electric power plant located in Guayama, a town on Puerto Rico’s southeastern coast, owned by the Virginia based Applied Energy Services (AES) and currently operating under a 25-year contract to sell energy to the highly indebted Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority (PREPA). The Guayama plant, which generates about 15% of Puerto Rico’s electricity, was listed in 2011 by the Environmental Integrity Project (EIP) as one of the ‘dirtiest’ within US jurisdictions. Carbon ash from the coal-fired plant is legally deposited in at least two other landfills on the island and several other locations have been identified as illegal dumpsites, including rivers and agricultural land along the southern coast.
