The following is a very long article about what would happen to the United States’ citizenship that Puerto Ricans have should Puerto Rico were to become an independent nation.
What is most interesting is that there is absolutely no discussion of the United States Government’s crime against humanity, which it has committed for the past 121 years!

Most people are unaware that Puerto Rico was a province of Spain with real self-government as a result of the Autonomic Charter of 1897 at the time that the United States Government (USG) decided to militarily invade Puerto Rico.
Puerto Ricans were real first-class citizens of Spain. Conversely, the citizenship that the USG forced upon the Puerto Ricans was, at best, second-class. The best example of this is the fact that, in order for a Puerto Rican to enjoy first-class citizenship, he must abandon his own national territory. This was done by design, so that Puerto Ricans would leave. That way, the USG could keep Puerto Rico for itself.
Puerto Ricans never asked for a military invasion, or for a citizenship that is not our own!
The USG is committing a crime against humanity by keeping Puerto Rico as its colony, because it is violating the United Nations’ (UN) Charter which prohibits colonialism since 1945, and has ignored 38 UN resolutions asking it to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans. Obviously, this article has the purpose of trying to distract attention from the USG’s crime against humanity. http://webtv.un.org/watch/5th-meeting-committee-of-24-special-committee-on-decolonization/6051725003001/
Puerto Ricans have an inalienable right, by international law, to our self-determination and independence. We also have the right to use whatever means necessary to decolonize ourselves.
We must organize ourselves to force the USG to comply with international law, because those who want to distract attention from their crime against humanity, don’t believe in LIBERTY AND IN JUSTICE FOR ALL! https://www.facebook.com/groups/1697349163904877/
