Now that Puerto Ricans are demanding that the United States Government’s (USG) colonial administrator for Puerto Rico, Ricardo Roselló, resign due to corruption, why not go all the way?
Even had the FBI not arrested, and the United States Court in Puerto Rico not charged Ricardo’s subordinates with criminal wrongdoings, the USG will continue to rob Puerto Ricans!
Have you ever wondered why more Puerto Ricans live outside of Puerto Rico than in? Why is that? Could that be evidence that Puerto Rico is not governed for the Puerto Ricans? And if not, then for whom? That is the 1898 story.
The USG wanted the 4 remaining Spanish colonies for itself. The USG started the American-Spanish War of 1898 to take them away. Puerto Rico was among them.
Puerto Rico had become a province of Spain a year before the United States’ (US) military invasion of our island. Puerto Ricans had real self-government by virtue of the Autonomic Charter of 1897. The USG didn’t care about that!
The USG classified Puerto Ricans as an inferior race in 1898, and put us in the unincorporated territory category. That meant that Puerto Rico belongs to, but is not a part of the US. And that means that, under international law, Puerto Rico is a US colony. Therefore, Puerto Rico is governed 100% for US interest. https://youtu.be/dRHGdhRBG1M
More Puerto Ricans live away from Puerto Rico, because the USG wants to get rid of us from our own national territory! So who is the bigger criminal, Ricardo or the USG?
If that many Boricuas in Boriken and in exile are protesting for Ricardo’s resignation, why can’t almost 9 million Puerto Ricans worldwide engage in permanent resistance to force the USG to comply with the United Nations’ (UN) Charter that prohibits colonialism, and the 38 UN resolutions asking it to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans? Even if Ricardo were to resign, we would still continue to be a US colony!
Let’s take advantage that “We’re mad as hell, and we’re not going to take it any more”, and get the job done for real! Let’s finally come together as a nation, because those who want our homeland don’t believe in LIBERTY AND IN JUSTICE FOR ALL!
Join us on Thursday, July 25, 2019 at the rock in Guanica to repudiate the US military invasion of our island at 2 PM, because that was where today’s nightmare beganfor us.
