NY1 VIDEO: As NY1 News revisits its 20-year history, the station looks back at reporter Jeanine Ramirez's May 4, 2000 report from Vieques, Puerto Rico as more than a hundred demonstrators - including some New York City officials - were arrested as they protested the U.S. Navy bombing range following the death of a civilian earlier in the year.

NY1 FOLLOW-UP: The controversy over the bombings would continue for years.
It was a battle that would be fought both in the courts - and in the court of public opinion - with prominent New York City elected officials and community leaders continuing to voice their opposition and take part in the protests.
