From river to sea

By José M. López Sierra – Puerto Rico


What does it mean when pro-Palestinians protesters chant “From the river to the sea Palestine will be free”? Pease click on the following link to watch a video of 2 Jews on opposite sides of Israel’s genocide against Palestinians arguing that:

That chant calls for the end of Jewish Zionist occupation in Palestine.

The occupation of a nation is against international law. Occupied people have a right to decolonize themselves under international law. The United Nation’s (UN) Secretary General Guterres was making that specific point, when he mentioned that “Hamas’s attack did not happen in a vacuum”.  

Israel, nevertheless, then decides to compound its crime of occupation with committing war crimes that included collective punishment, ethnic cleansing, and genocide.

Where is the UN and the International Criminal Court on Israel’s major attack on world peace? They are held hostage by the United States (US), the so-called “champion of democracy”.

The same US that has had Puerto Rico as its colony for the past 125 years! The US has refused to comply with 42 UN resolutions asking it immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans. Thus, the US has been willingly committing a crime against humanity, before Israel decided to.

The US is presently unconditionally supporting Israel’s genocide against the Palestinians, because it also did the same thing against the indigenous people of America in order to establish its own artificial colonial settler nation.  

We all need to see the rule of law from river to sea and beyond!

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.
