dc.description.abstractDuring the past 60 years, a social movement has emerged protesting the U.S. Navy's training activities on the Puerto Rican island of Vieques. The Navy has maintained that bombing and live- fire training on Vieques are essential to military readiness and national security. Many Viequens claim that the Navy's activities on the island harm civilian residents by limiting the amount of available land, preventing economic growth, and causing environmental contamination that leads to health problems. The purpose of this project is to identify the issues that have been central to historical and contemporary protests and analyze how and why these issues change over time. This is accomplished by using the theoretical perspectives offered by cultural models and collective action frames to analyze central issues in this social movement.
