Dear Editor:

I would like to locate a group composed of "gringos" and the locals, the environmentalists and the innkeepers, the independentistas and the pro-Navy groups that have the common goal of preserving Vieques dignity as well as preventing the construction of several new buildings within the Sun Bay/Bioluminescent Bay Natural Reserve that are going to, forever damage the pristine landscaping of Vieques.

I believe that la Isla Nena deserves more dignity, care and respect than the proposed new buildings which includes a fishermen wharf, a fishermen pier, and several concrete bungalows. I just came from Boqueron and was appalled to see how badly and ugly this bungalows look now. Vieques deserves a much better future that that of Boqueron. We should not allow all this mistakes to be repeated again. My idea is to join a "grass-root" organization that would fight for preserving Vieques' environmental assets (a kind of "Save Vieques" committee).

The time to become involved in the future of our territories has come!
