Outside the Alexander Hamilton U.S. Custom House in New York, where a “listening session” of Puerto Rico’s Fiscal Control Board was held Thursday, federal police prevented a photographer with the Center for Investigative Journalism (CIJ) from doing his job and was prohibited from entering the building. Inside, the Board held a session called “The Future of Puerto Rico’s Energy Sector,” with an agenda that included some of the big players in the energy sector. For Puerto Rico, a U.S. unincorporated territory that has been trying to recover from the landslide of Hurricane María, the future of its public energy utility is at the center of its rebuilding process, with 40% of residents still lacking electricity four months after the passage of the storm. At the same time, the island’s governor Ricardo Rosselló recently announced his intent to privatize part of the utility, which is in the midst of a bankruptcy process under the so-called Promesa law, like the territory itself. In the morning, Homeland Security agents decided to put a barricade to demarcate a protest area after the demonstration had begun.
