The following is the typical news reports that you will find in the media. They are divorced from the most essential elements of Puerto Rican history, so you are left more confused than when the report started. Click on the following link to watch such a news report:
This is the rest of the story that these reports always leave out.
Puerto Rico was a Spanish province, when the United States (US) government (USG) militarily invaded her to make her its colony. The Treaty of Paris of 1898, still the law of the land, says that the rights of the Puerto Ricans will be determined by the USG. Thus, all of the tragedy depicted in the above video is the result of 123 years of US colonialism.
As was briefly noted in the video, Puerto Rico is a paradise. We have excellent farming weather, and great fishing all year around. Why are Puerto Ricans importing 85% of what we consume, and using the most expensive ships? We do, because it benefits exclusively the USG. But that is exactly what colonies are for!
The USG wants Puerto Ricans to leave our natural paradise. That is why the USG has purposefully made our paradise inhospitable to us. And, once the USG could establish a majority of whites in our national territory, the USG will make Puerto Rico the 51st state of its Union! The so-called “governor of Puerto Rico”, Pedro Pierluisi, doesn’t see the writing on the wall, because he is ignorant of history!
Puerto Ricans must learn our history, because the USG will not teach it to us.
Most Puerto Ricans don’t know that on Friday, June 18, 2021 the United Nations (UN) will hold its annual hearing to discuss Puerto Rico decolonization.
Most Puerto Ricans don’t know that the USG has never complied with the UN’s Charter that prohibits colonialism for the past 76 years! That means that the USG is committing a crime against humanity for maintaining Puerto Rico as its colony.
Most Puerto Ricans don’t know that the USG has ignored with impunity 39 UN resolutions asking it to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans. http://webtv.un.org/watch/5th-meeting-committee-of-24-special-committee-on-decolonization/6051725003001
And, most Puerto Ricans don’t know that 5.8 million Boricuas today live away from our national territory. Only 3.2 million of us have refused to abandon our homeland!
Therefore, the 9 million Boricuas worldwide must engage in resistance now, tomorrow and forever to force the USG to comply with international law. If not, we will become a nation without a homeland!
We must avoid becoming a nation without a homeland!
