Awe-inspiring radical direct action in 70s NYC

5 stars

Awe-inspiring historical account of a radical Puerto Rican organization primarily in NYC in the early 70s, parallel to and inspired by the Black Panther Party, revolutionary unarmed direct action embedded with the community to effect real change for housing, sanitation, medical care, and education. The author brings in so much systemic context to the community's formation and situation along the way, while keeping the attention on the organization's tactics, challenges, and demands.
