#Despacito : Puerto Rico to host #ICANN61 all while half the island has no power

ICANN61 in San Juan.

ICANN insists that Puerto Rico is staying the course, as host of ICANN61, in March.

The hurricane-stricken island, sustained a complete power loss, after its infrastructure was destroyed by hurricane Maria last September.

Between March 10 and 18, 2018, San Juan is scheduled to host the ICANN61event, despite news that almost half of the electricity customers in Puerto Rico lack power.

Initially, governor Ricardo Rosselló had set a goal of returning power to 95% of customers by the end of 2017, a goal that will now not be met.

In our opinion, going forward with the ICANN61 event in San Juan, is a demonstration of disregard of the numerous hardships that Puerto Ricans face.

San Juan is the location where the most viewed YouTube video of all time, Despacito, was shot at. The song’s title – “slowly” – reflects the current pace of restoring power in Puerto Rico.
