By José M. López Sierra – Puerto Rico
That was the idea of a republic and a constitution. The power would be divided among three branches of government, so that, at least in theory, each one could control the others. And in that way, no one would be above the law. But guess what? The United States Government (USG) is above the law.
Professor Noam Chomsky explains in this short video that the USG does whatever it wants to with impunity:
The following survey shows that the world voted the USG as the biggest threat to world peace. The USG received 3 times as many votes as the second biggest threat. Click on the following link for the details:https://www.indepthnews.net/index.php/opinion/3227-u-s-is-greatest-threat-to-world-peace
The United Nations (UN) is a rubber stamp for whatever the USG wants to do. Isn’t it ironic that the organization responsible for ensuring world peace is located in the country that the world deems the biggest threat to world peace?
Let’s take Puerto Rico as another example. The UN’s Charter prohibits colonialism since 1945, but the USG has violated it for the past 75 years!
The UN has issued 38 resolutions asking the USG to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans. It has ignored them all. http://webtv.un.org/watch/5th-meeting-committee-of-24-special-committee-on-decolonization/6051725003001/
The UN is in the last year of its 3rd international decade for the eradication of colonialism. Will the UN call for a fourth?
Puerto Ricans are the ones who have the inalienable right to self-determination and independence. Until we engage in permanent resistance to push the USG to comply with international law, it will not happen no matter how many decades are dedicated for that.
Let’s educate ourselves to become more united. Let’s mobilize the almost 9 million Puerto Ricans worldwide to engage in massive permanent resistance to liberate ourselves.
Let’s do it, because those who believe that they are above the law don’t believe in LIBERTY AND IN JUSTICE FOR ALL!
Let’s make sure of that!
