A war to preserve King Cotton

By José M. López Sierra – Puerto Rico


The reason for the United States (US) Civil War was to preserve the South’s institution of slavery, so that she could maintain her King Cotton wealth. Click on the following link to learn more:

The 13 American colonies fought their revolutionary war against England over money disputes. The same was true for the US Civil War. Absent from both of these wars were the revolutionary ideals of liberty, and justice for all?

These ideals are just as far away today, as they were at the birth of the US in 1776. The January 6, 2021 “Make America Great Again” Capitol insurrection is the latest evidence of that!

33 years after the end of the US Civil War, the US government (USG) decided to substitute the slaves it lost via the emancipation of 1865.  The USG militarily invaded Puerto Rico to make her its colony. Puerto Ricans have been US slaves for the past 123 years!

The USG has refused to comply with the United Nations’ (UN) Charter that prohibits colonialism for the past 76 years.

The USG has also ignored 39 UN resolutions asking it to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans. That means that today the USG is guilty of committing a crime against humanity! 

The best way to try to make good on the stated ideals in the US Constitution is for all good citizens to prevent white supremacists from ever holding public offices. Doing so will make it easier for the USG to serve 100% of its citizens!

Our struggle for a real democracy.

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.
