The following video is a politically friendly propaganda of the 124 years of United States (US) colonialism in Puerto Rico.
This video ignores the real reasons why almost half of Puerto Ricans living in Puerto Rico live in poverty, and why more Puerto Ricans live away from our national territory. Click on the following link to watch that video: https://youtu.be/2RaDnyZk8BE
This video never mentioned the fact that the US militarily invaded Puerto Rico in 1898 to make her its colony. The proof is in the Treaty of Paris of 1898 that is still today the law of the land. It states that the rights of Puerto Ricans shall be determined by the US government (USG). That means that Puerto Ricans have no rights that the USG has to respect! And, where can we see that in action?
The USG has never complied with the United Nations’ (UN) Charter of 1945 that prohibits colonialism for being a crime against humanity. Moreover, the USG has consistently ignored 40 UN resolutions asking it to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=otzBslJLbI0
Javier A. Hernandez has written 2 books about how Puerto Rico could rid herself of perpetual bankruptcy. Click on the following link for more: https://youtu.be/iSjFXZFRpvk
Who could be against Puerto Rico independence? Ironically, the so-called “beacon of democracy”. If the US really were democratic, why does the world regard her as the biggest threat to peace? https://todosunidosdescolonizarpr.blogspot.com/
Colonialism is a crime against humanity!
