Protest better than “US democracy”

Por José M. López Sierra – Puerto Rico


The United States (US) claims that she is the champion of democracy. US citizens, however, are protesting in the streets, because she is Israel’s biggest supporter of its genocide against the Palestinian people. A march on Washington in solidarity with Palestine for November 4th, 2023 is expected to be massive! Where did US democracy go wrong?

“US democracy has always been wrong for the 99% of her citizens. The US was established by the rich, thus she has always been a plutocracy.

The most dramatic evidence of this is the fact that 8 of the 10 richest men in the world are US citizens, while 38 million Americans live in poverty. Is that the will of 100% of Americans, or is that the will of just the 1%?

The US claims that she believes in the rule of law. Why then has she refused to comply with 42 United Nations (UN) resolutions asking her to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans? The UN’s Decolonization Committee has passed the latest of these resolutions by unanimous consent!  

If the US is indeed the champion of democracy, why have most nations repeatedly name the US as the biggest threat to peace on Gallup Polls? The best proof of that are the wars in Ukraine and Israel. The US has done everything in her power to get the world into world war III. Is that what 100% of the people of the world want?

“US democracy” can be fatal to human existence!

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.
