The women of the Alliance have decided that Vieques is our house and therefore we will defend it. For too long, our house, Vieques, has been raped, robbed, burned, mutilated, mistreated by military forces, which brought damage to the population for 60 years. This is why we are determined and unafraid to put our house in order. I want to [invite] all of you women who hear this message to unite in one voice, to unite your voices with ours, because the only requirement that you need to belong to the Alliance, to be part of this blessed struggle, is to be a woman, to have the desire to be free and above all to want to live in peace. For this, in the name of all the women of Vieques, thank you, thank you very much. We move forward together declaring in unison: Ni un tiro más, ni una bomba más para Vieques! (Not one more shot, not one more bomb for Vieques!) (Sobá 2000, n.p.).
