Thousands jam San Juan streets to demand Puerto Rico's governor resign

Thousands protest PR governorThousands of people blocked a major San Juan highway on Monday in a protest aimed at forcing Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rosselló to resign over offensive chat messages, the latest scandal to hit a bankrupt island struggling to recover from deadly 2017 hurricanes.

Rosselló’s announcement on Sunday that he would not seek re-election next year and would step down as head of the New Progressive Party seemed to have little effect on the crowds, who called for him to immediately surrender the governorship. The island’s largest newspaper on Monday called on the first-term governor to leave office.

Crowds of people, many dressed in black T-shirts and waving the U.S. island territory’s flag, filled a major highway in San Juan in the latest in a series of more than a week of sometimes violent protests in the capital and elsewhere.
