Samantha Bee sheds light on Puerto Rico’s 120-year history of United States (US) colonialism. Click on the following link to watch her video: https://youtu.be/jZBz9vB0Wr8
What Samantha doesn’t understand is that voting is not the answer to decolonizing Puerto Rico, because it operates within the control of who wants Puerto Rico to be a US colony forever.
Puerto Ricans are protesting the fiscal control board, closing of schools, privatization of essential services, reduction of pensions, and the list goes on. Instead of dividing Puerto Ricans in all these different struggles, we should realize that all of them have as a common denominator that Puerto Rico is not governed for Puerto Ricans. All 8 million plus Puerto Ricans should be protesting for Independence!
Therefore, the real answer is for Puerto Ricans to organize themselves to execute massive and permanent resistance to force the US government to comply with the United Nations’ Charter and its 36 resolutions to return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=otzBslJLbI0
Why must the protest be massive? Because those who want to take Puerto Rico away from Puerto Ricans don’t believe in LIBERTY AND IN JUSTICE FOR ALL! https://www.facebook.com/groups/1697349163904877/
