Puerto Rico/Boriken has been engaged in an anti-colonial resistance struggle for over 500 years, beginning with Taino and African resistance against the spanish conquistadors, to the Puerto Rican Nationalists and clandestine liberation struggle against the united states, and the self determination, autonomy and decolonizing resistance movements that exist today.  

The AAA Resistance Reading list consists of radical reading for rebel Ricans, cultural conspirators and artonomous allies seeking more information/knowledge about our-story of liberation and resistance.
