Translation to Spanish of Vía Verde Environmental Assessment Draft
I demand the translation from English to Spanish of the Vía Verde Environmental Assessment draft. Over 80% of the population of Puerto Rico is unable to read or comment a document in English. Refusing to translate this document would constitute an act of discrimination, environmental injustice and a violation of the constitutional rights of the people of Puerto Rico to express themselves on a matter that adversely affects our life, health, safety, economic well being and future. Thus, I demand that USACE translate the aforementioned document and that it starts counting the 30-day comment period the day that the document is made available in Spanish to the people of Puerto Rico.
