By José M. López Sierra – Puerto Rico
Edward Snowden lived a comfortable life working for the National Security Administration (NSA) of the United States (US) in Hawaii.
The US government (USG) is at war with him, because Edward has a conscious that can’t be bought. He believes that his country is a democracy, and that her government ought to respect the rule of law.
Edward believes that the USG was established 244 years ago to be of, by and for the people. But in his work inside the government, he saw that that is not so! Click on the following link to hear Edward tell his story: https://youtu.be/0hLjuVyIIrs
If you need more to be convinced, let’s take the USG’s treatment of Puerto Rico for the past 121 years.
The USG has repeatedly refused to comply with 38 United Nations resolutions asking it to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans. The USG has preferred to continue to commit a crime against humanity by maintaining Puerto Rico as its colony, because that benefits 0.1% of its citizens to become richer! http://webtv.un.org/watch/5th-meeting-committee-of-24-special-committee-on-decolonization/6051725003001/
Edward’s fear is that, although the people may become aware that they have no real liberty, they would still not take the risk to change the status quo. Nevertheless, Edward feels that it has been worth the risk that he took, because he does not want to live in a society that does these things.
It is up to us to decide whether we want real liberty, or are we satisfied with just the government’s lip service. One thing is perfectly clear. Those who violate their own Constitution, despises JUSTICE FOR ALL.
And should the US fall someday, like all empires eventually do, all who looked the other way would have helped to make that happen! https://todosunidosdescolonizarpr.blogspot.com/
Or do we just have lip service?
