By José M. López Sierra – Puerto Rico
The United States (US) government (USG) is considering 2 bills concerning Puerto Rico’s future political status. Click on the following link to watch that video:
That all might look like democracy in the works, but what is Puerto Rico’s current political status? She has been a US colony for the past 123 years. How did that happen?
The USG militarily invaded Puerto Rico on July 25, 1898 specifically to make her its colony. There was nothing democratic about that!
The USG has never complied with the United Nations’ Charter that prohibits colonialism for the past 76 years. Moreover, the USG has ignored, with impunity, 39 UN resolutions asking it to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans. Thus, these bills in the US Congress is a way to hide the fact that the USG is committing a crime against humanity! http://webtv.un.org/watch/5th-meeting-committee-of-24-special-committee-on-decolonization/6051725003001/
Everybody ought to know that Puerto Ricans, as US subjects, can’t decide anything. Therefore, having us vote in a plebiscite proves that the USG just wants to pretend to be trying to fix a problem that only it created.
If the USG really,in fact, want justice for Puerto Ricans, it would comply with the already existing international law. But its real intent is to continue to divide and conquer the minds of Puerto Ricans to keep Puerto Rico as its colony forever.
If we allow the US to be in charge of Puerto Rico decolonization, it would be like Derek Chauvin being in total control of his trial for murdering George Floyd. Chauvin would have never been found guilty as charged!
Learn your own real history, and engage in permanent resistance to force the USG to comply with international law.
What could be more democratic than that?
