Operation Bootstrap (60 min.) (1983) (Puerto Rico) Directed by: Pedro Angel Rivera & Susan Zeig
Operation Bootstrap by Pedro Angel Rivera and Susan Zeig exposes the first “free trade” zone set up by the US in Puerto Rico. It was advertised as helping the people of Puerto Rico, but in fact, it has ended up putting them in further poverty and deprivation. This FTZ was replicated around the world. Today the US government and Congress are imposing draconian attacks on the working class to pay off vulture capitalists who have speculated on Puerto Rican bonds. The US has also forced the privatization of their health system and utilities, and is now pushing for the privatization of their education system.
