VARGAS CANALES, Margarita Aurora. The revolt also came from the sugar cane: the case of Puerto Rico. Latinoamérica [online]. 2010, n.50, pp.81-101. ISSN 2448-6914.
This text focuses on the links between the nationalism and the sugar cane workers during the strikes of 1934. It presents a historical panorama of the 1930 decade in the Caribbean Islands. The sugar strikes of 1934 were the only historical sugar cane worker's chance to join Pedro Albizu's nationalistic ideas. The 1934's movements were an important element to open political options (communism, nationalism) for the sugar workers.
