The following video gives you an overview on this topic, but it doesn’t give you an accurate account about Puerto Rico’s 120 years of being a United States colony. Click here to watch the video: https://youtu.be/oDxW2QIscxg
What this video doesn’t mention is that the United States Government (USG) was a major force in the establishment of the United Nations (UN) after World War II. The world expected that the USG would lead other empires by example and comply with the UN’s Charter of eradicating colonialism. But it did not!
Moreover, the USG has violated 37 UN resolutions asking it to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans.
The USG acted in bad faith in 1953, when it asked the UN to take Puerto Rico off its list of colonies. It lied when it told the UN that Puerto Rico had attained self-government by the 1952 Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. Therefore, you will not find Puerto Rico on the list today even though she is the oldest and most populated colony.
The UN itself has acted in bad faith by never returning Puerto Rico back on its list of colonies, despite its continuous celebrations of annual hearings for Puerto Rico decolonization, and the USG’s own confession in the Pueblo vs Sanchez Valles Case in 2016 that Washington has Puerto Rico’s sovereignty.
Join the permanent resistance to force the USG to comply with the will of the international community, because a government that wants to maintain its colonies forever doesn’t believe in LIBERTY AND IN JUSTICE FOR ALL! https://www.facebook.com/groups/1697349163904877/
