Most United States (US) citizens know that they have no say in how their government is run. This is why most of them stay home on Election Day. That is, however, exactly what the 1% who actually run the country want US citizens to do. It’s called neoliberalism. The government allows its companies to make as much money as they can at the expense of its citizens and the rest of the world.


The major news media represent this 1%. Therefore, it will feed you what it believes will make you not challenge the exploitation of the 99%. So what can you do?

You can look for information that is not controlled by the 1%, and think critically about it. You can organize, and let your voices be heard outside the electoral process, because that too is controlled by the 1%. You can march and protest for what you believe is against the interest of the 99%. All this you must do because, those who run a country for only 1% of its citizens, don’t believe in JUSTICE FOR ALL!

Nací en NYC. Me mudé a Puerto Rico en el 1980 donde eventualmente me convertí en independentista al ver que PR no se administra para los boricuas. Me retiré tempranamente de la pedagogía para luchar 24/7 por la descolonización de Puerto Rico a través de marchas pacíficas anuales y empujar a la ONU hacer su trabajo. Necesitaremos un tsunami de gente protestando permanentemente para obligar a USA a cumplir con la ley internacional que prohíbe el coloniaje.
