We will be reading The Battle for Paradise: Puerto Rico Takes On The Disaster Capitalists by Naomi Klein. It is a short read which explores the exploitation of Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria by "disaster capitalists" who want to privatize all public goods and turn the island into a tax haven and resort for the ultra-wealthy, whereas Puerto Ricans want to build a more sustainable, resilient, independent Puerto Rico. You can buy the book for under $5 directly from the publisher Haymarket Books https://www.haymarketbooks.org/books/1235-the-battle-for-paradise with all proceeds going to JunteGente.
