Most people are aware that the Nazis exterminated 6 million Jews before Germany’s defeat in 1944. The Nuremberg Trials to do justice to the Nazi atrocity gave rise to the international law that we have today.
But, there is another holocaust that is not mentioned often. We could call it the Colonial Holocaust. 55 million indigenous people died during the century following Christopher Columbus’ landing in America. Click on the following link to learn more:
The United Nations (UN) is in the last year of its 3rd International Decade for the eradication of colonialism. The UN is located in the United States (US).
Do you know that the United States Government (USG) has had Puerto Rico as its colony for the past 121 years! Do you know that Puerto Rico is the oldest and most populated colony in the world?
How is it possible that the UN,which is dedicated to preserving world peace, is located in the US? Gallup International Polls have repeatedly shown that the world overwhelminglyregards the USG asthe biggest threat to world peace? And, for good reason.
The United States government (USG) has violated, since day 1,the UN’s Charter that prohibits colonialism since 1945.
The USG lied to the UNto get Puerto Rico off its list of colonies. The USG alleged in 1953 that Puerto Rico had attained self-government in 1952.
The USG has ignored 38 UN resolutions asking it to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans.
Despite the UN’s dedication to 3 international decades for the eradication of colonialism, the UN is obligated to call for a 4thin order to make good on its 1960 resolution that all nations have the inalienable right to self-determination and independence. Do you know that people under colonialism have the right to use all means necessary to decolonize themselves?http://webtv.un.org/watch/5th-meeting-committee-of-24-special-committee-on-decolonization/6051725003001/
How could we eradicate the Colonial Holocaust?
All peace-loving people could engage in permanent resistance to force the USG to comply with international law. We must, because a government that has done everything in its power to continue to commit its crime against humanity, doesn’t believe in LIBERTY AND IN JUSTICE FOR ALL!
The Colonial Holocaust.
