Because Puerto Rico is for exploitation

By José M. López Sierra – Puerto Rico


Most United States (US) citizens don’t know that Puerto Ricans are US citizens, and less know that US citizenship was forced upon Puerto Ricans in 1917.

The following video is about why the US government (USG) refuses to offer statehood to Puerto Rico, and about blaming the so-called “Puerto Rico debt” on Wall Street. Click on the following link to watch that video:

This video is trying to mask the real reason why Puerto Rico has always been unable to fend for herself during the past 123 years that she has been a colony of the USG.

The fact of the matter is that the USG militarily invaded Puerto Rico in 1898 specifically to make Puerto Rico its colony. That is evidenced by the fact that the USG specifically demanded language in the Treaty of Paris of 1898 that stated, the rights of the inhabitants of Puerto Rico will be determined by the USG.

What this video should have been about was, why does the USG continue to commit a crime against humanity by refusing to comply with the United Nations’ (UN) Charter of 1945 that prohibits colonialism?

The video never mentioned the fact that the USG has ignored 39 UN resolutions asking it to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans.  

The crisis in Puerto Rico is indisputably intentional. The USG would be happy if it could depopulate Puerto Ricans from our national territory. Once the USG could repopulate Puerto Rico with a majority of Whites, it would be more than happy to make Puerto Rico the 51st state of the Union.  

Therefore, it is incumbent on the almost 9 million Puerto Ricans worldwide to engage in permanent resistance to force the USG to comply with international law. Puerto Ricans have the inalienable right to self-determination and independence. What could be more democratic than that?

The US will have to be forced to do what is right!

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.
