The only picture of the event that has both Resident Commissioner Pedro Pierluisi and ¡Boricua Ahora Es! leader Ricardo rossello.

Last Saturday statehood supporters from across the island met to commemorate the birth of Jose Celso Barbosa at a low key event organized by Proyecto Estrella and the Puerto Rico Statehood Students Association.

The even had what we’re sure was an awkward encounter between New Progressive Party potential gubernatorial candidates Pedro Pierluisi and Ricardo Rossello, who through their own independent channels, promote the event, and highlighted their participation. Pictures of the event from each camp however, would have led anyone to believe there were two separate events, even though it was the one and the same.

Proyecto Estrella managed to get the only picture that showed both leaders in the same frame in their appropriately named post “United for Barbosa”.
