Puerto Rico’s Condition Critical

By José M. López Sierra – New York City

Puerto Rico made the front page of the New York (NY) Times today, Wednesday, October 11, 2017. The headlineread, Medical Crisis in Puerto Rico: The Whole Island Is Critical by Frances Robles from Caguas, Puerto Rico. Click on the following link to read the article:

This newspaper never reports when the United Nations’(UN) Decolonization Committee holds its annual hearing on Puerto Rico decolonization. This hearing is usually held on the Monday after Fathers’ Day. It also does not report that the USis a terrorist state for ignoring 36 UN resolutions asking it to give Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Rico. The UN declared colonialism a crime against humanity in 1960.

Isn’t that remarkable that the NY Times refuses to report it, even though,the largest concentration of Puerto Ricans reside in the state of New York outside of our national territory?Is this what the US government calls a free press?

Would Puerto Ricobe in the crisis it is now, had the United Sates government given Puerto Rico her sovereignty in 1960?

Puerto Rico would have been for the last 57 years governed for the benefit of Puerto Ricans, instead of US interest. Borikén would have beendeveloped, so that Puerto Ricans would produce what we need. That would have meant jobs needed in Puerto Rico to keep us here instead of emigrating or joining the US military. Are you aware thatthere are more Puerto Ricans living away from Puerto Rico? Do you know that Puerto Ricans import from the US 80% of what we eat?

Puerto does not have a debt crisis. Puerto Rico has a colonial crisis, since 1898. The United States militarily invaded Puerto Rico. The US Congress classified Puerto Ricans as belonging to an inferior race to create a law to keep us as its colony forever. Puerto Rico, under this law, is a non incorporated territory. The US Supreme Court said that that means the Puerto Rico belongs to, but it is not a part of the United States.

I wrote to CBS 60 Minutesproposing that it do a report of 120 years of Puerto Rico colonialism. In its 50-year history and 43 Emmys, it has not had the time to investigate this US crime against humanity. Maybe now with the NY Times article, it might be motivated to accept my proposal! We’ll see.

Join us in our permanent protests to force that US government to comply with the UN resolutions, because those who hide their crime against humanity don’t believe in LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL!
