By José M. López Sierra – Puerto Rico
The United Nations (UN) has proven, throughout its 76 year history, its impotency in regards to Puerto Rico’s colonialism.
The UN’s Charter prohibits colonialism, because it is a crime against humanity. The UN has issued, thus far, 39 resolutions asking the United States government (USG) to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans. The USG has never complied with international law! What has been the UN’s response?
The UN has continued to hold its annual Puerto Rico decolonization hearings, and has continued to issue its resolutions stating the same violations to international law. http://webtv.un.org/watch/5th-meeting-committee-of-24-special-committee-on-decolonization/6051725003001/
What does this mean to the 5.4 million Puerto Ricans who have abandoned our national territory, and the 3.2 million who has refused to?
We must understand that we are the only ones who will save our homeland. We must engage in permanent resistance to force the USG to comply with international law. That pressure must be huge, because the world considers the USG as the biggest threat to peace.
Our road to unity rests in our ability to decolonizing our minds. That will tell us what we must do to create a real Boricua government of Boricuas, by Boricuas and for Boricuas.
We are the ones who have the inalienable right to self-determination and independence. We can’t wait for others to do our job!
We have the potency.
