PR independence isn’t via a US process

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:

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.

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.

An outlaw can’t also be democratic!

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.
