In this page you will find the highest honor I received as a photojournalist. This image was taken during a strike of the government owned telephone company in Puerto Rico in 1998. Police clashed with protesters and I was there to capture a moment that changed the course of the strike creating international interest about the event. There is a video link of that event (bottom of the page) and you will get an idea of what happened that day.
