By José M. López Sierra – Puerto Rico
The following video admits that the United States (US) government (USG) does not favor independence for Puerto Rico. The video also uses the US friendly term of “territory”, or “Commonwealth of Puerto Rico” instead of using the word colony when referring to Puerto Rico’s relationship with the US for the past 124 years. And lastly, the video makes no reference to international law with regards to Puerto Rico decolonization. Click on the following link to watch that video: https://youtu.be/AfLW_Iihl1o
It is important to note that all nations have an inalienable right to their self-determination and independence. A nation under colonialism has the right to use any means necessary to gain her independence. The USG, however, has violently resisted Puerto Rico’s independence.
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 40 UN resolutions asking it to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=otzBslJLbI0
So, what should make us believe that the USG really wants to resolve a problem that it unilaterally created via a military invasion in 1898? Obliviously, the US’ colonial relationship with Puerto Rico benefits the 1% of US citizens that she solely represents!
Therefore, the battle for Puerto Rico’s independence must be waged in the streets. The 9 million Puerto Rican worldwide must engage in permanent resistance to force the USG to comply with international law. https://todosunidosdescolonizarpr.blogspot.com/
An outlaw can’t also be democratic!
