Ismael Guadalupe

Ismael Guadalupe Ortiz is perhaps best recognized for his leading role in the more than six decades long movement in Vieques, Puerto Rico, to close the bombing range which the U.S. Navy opened in 1941, to regain ownership of the ancestral lands expropriated (2/3 of the land), to obtain the decontamination of the Island Municipality of Vieques, and to establish a viable and sustainable economic life. In April of 2005, Ismael Guadelupe visited Cornell University and Ithaca, N.Y. at the invitation of the Latin@ Graduate Student Coalition and the Ithaca Catholic Worker Vieques Support Group.
