Could PR do it better?

por José M. López Sierra – Puerto Rico


If they let us, like the song goes.

All of the laws over Puerto Ricans are against them! Why?

Puerto Rico was a colony of Spain for 405 years. Various United States’ presidents tried to buy Cuba and Puerto Rico. Spain never wanted to sell them, because these 2 islands represented a gold mine for the Spanish crown.

Simon Bolivar, the Liberator of America, had only 2 more nations to go to finish his work of ridding America from Spanish colonialism in 1897.

Fearing that she would lose them, Spain granted Puerto Rico her autonomy via the Autonomic Charter of 1897. The United States Government (USG) quickly mobilized to declare war on Spain to make Puerto Rico her colony.

Puerto Rico has been a USG colony for the last 120 years. Puerto Rico could definitely do it better, but she has been a colony of 2 very powerful empires.

Puerto Ricans have suffered from these empires controlling the information that they receive for 525 years to keep them in their place, and to continue exploiting them for their interests.

To achieve that, everything has to be the opposite of logic and the truth. That is why Puerto Ricans are afraid of their own nationalism and their own independence!

Puerto Rico decolonization will never be achieved via the election process, because Puerto Ricans have no rights that the USG has to respect via the Treaty of Paris of 1898.

The better way would be to decolonize their minds to enable them to engage in permanent resistance to force the USG to comply with the United Nations’ (UN) Charter and its 37 resolutions asking it to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans.

Join or organize your own permanent resistance in your community to force the USG to let us decolonize.

Become involved, because those who have never allowed us to decolonize don’t believe in LIBERTY AND 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.
