PR electric service is a disaster

By José M. López Sierra – Puerto Rico


The electric service in Puerto Rico is poor, because half of the Puerto Ricans there live in poverty. If Puerto Rico were not a United States (US) colony, she would have a first rate electrical system.

The US militarily invaded Puerto Rico in 1898 to make her a US colony. In 1945, the US refused to comply with the United Nations’ (UN) Charter that prohibits colonialism for being a crime against humanity. Moreover, the US has ignored 41 UN resolutions asking her to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans. The US has never defended democracy. She has only used that word to defend only the interests of her 1% of citizens. That has meant 124 years of US colonialism for Puerto Ricans!

If the relationship between the US and Puerto is so good for Puerto Ricans, why do two thirds of us live away from our national territory? Why must Puerto Ricans abandon Puerto Rico to supposedly “enjoy all of the benefits” of having US citizenship? Could it be that it was designed that way to get Puerto Ricans out of Puerto Rico? Why should Puerto Ricans be the only ones in the world without our own citizenship?

The 9 million Boricuas worldwide must wake up and organize ourselves to engage in permanent resistance to force the US to comply with international law.

Puerto Ricans need not be poor in Puerto Rico.

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.
