Is PR a democracy?

By José M. López Sierra – Puerto Rico


Please click on the following link to watch just one example of how Puerto Ricans in Puerto Rico get exploited by the United States government (USG):

Puerto Ricans in Puerto Rico protest against, not only the private electric company LUMA Energy, but also gentrification, closing down hospitals and schools, “Paz para Vieques”, “Vete Ricky”, Veterans’ Hospital, Fiscal Control Board, and the list goes on. And it must, because the fact is that Puerto Rico has been a colony of the USG for the past 124 years. Although, half of the Puerto Ricans in Puerto Rico want statehood, the USG prefers to keep her as its colony now, tomorrow and forever!

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 ignored repeatedly 41 UN resolutions asking it to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans. What could Puerto Ricans do?

The 9 million Puerto Ricans worldwide should engage in the permanent resistance “Yankee Go Home” to force the USG to comply with international law.

If PR looks, walks and talks like a colony, then she is a colony.

PR is a US colony.

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.
