Demonstrators around the U.S. have been calling in recent weeks for the removal of confederate monuments honoring slaveowners who fought against Union troops in the American Civil War.  VOA’s Arash Arabasadi reports of a similar movement south of the mainland in Puerto Rico, where activists call for the removal of statues honoring Spanish colonizers.
