The End the Debt! Decolonize! Liberate! scroll project is a participatory cultural response to Hurricane María that tells the story of U.S. imperialism through the lens of the current economic and environmental state of Puerto Rico and its diaspora. The scroll was developed between AgitArte and collaborators in the U.S. and Puerto Rico, and is part of the Arts and Culture tour of the recently released book,"When We Fight, We Win!: Twenty-First Century Social Movements and the Activists That Are Transforming Our World.
To view the whole scroll, go to this link, and click on the image on the top. You will then see a screen pop up with a black background and a thin strip of color in the middle. Click on the leftmost part of that strip, and the image will zoom in. Keep clicking on that section of the scroll until the image is as large as you want it. From there, you can use the right and left arrows to view the rest of the scroll (right to go forward, left to go back). In the top right corner of the window you can see your position in relation to the rest of the scroll. There is a small red box that moves along as you do, so you can track your progress as you move through the scroll.
Here are a few powerful images from the scroll as it recounts Puerto Rico's history:
