From the 1940’s, Vieques lands were used for military exercises for the naval institute. Following opposition and pressure from the Puerto Rican people, the Navy was compelled to abandon Isla Nena. In 2003, it was withdrawn under executive order by President Bill Clinton, but still the battle remains unfinished. The people of Vieques allege that their lands continue to be polluted and they denounce the control that the United States Federal Government maintains over a large portion of it.
