Another United Nations’ (UN) hearing about PR decolonization will be celebrated on Monday, June 24, 2019 at 10 AM, but most people usually will never hear about it. The UN, however, has finally agreed to broadcast the hearing live this year on http://webtv.un.org/. We have already notified some of the local stations to see if they would broadcast it as a public service to their viewers.
Puerto Ricans on and off the island are beginning to work closer together than ever for Puerto Rico decolonization since Hurricane Maria.
Our season’s program of resistance began with New York City’s (NYC) Comité Independentista Boricua’s march for Puerto Rico independence in last Sunday’s, June 9, 2019, National Puerto Rican Day Parade. I believe that that had never been done before!
Boricuas in Puerto Rico will be marching on Saturday, June 15, 2019 at 10 AM, in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico in their 6th March for Puerto Rico Independence. https://m.facebook.com/Marcha-Independencia-ya-824385494593727/?ref=nf&hc_ref=ARQk_pD9BJesAbl4td6WrBGGMkjGtx-obkGWxC2lDTOGmWID0lgyrBD0FuVVDJbPXVY
The Oscar – Mandela New York City Committee will have its 6th Hunter College to the Ralph Bunche Park March on Monday, June 17, 2019 at 10AM. The purpose of these marches is to make New Yorkers aware of the annual UN hearings, since the conventional media blacks them out.

We will have a candlelight vigil at the UN on the night before the hearing – Sunday, June 23, 2019.
And, finally, we will have a rally at the Ralph Bunche Park on the day of the hearing – Monday, June 24, 2019.
Ignorance has kept us divided for the past 120 years. Knowledge and love for our natural homeland, however, will be the glue that will unite us to save our beloved Boriken. Get glued, because those who want to steal our natural homeland from us, don’t believe in LIBERTY AND IN JUSTICE FOR ALL! https://www.facebook.com/groups/1697349163904877/
Knowledge and love will be the glue to decolonize ourselves.
