Click on the following link to hear a Puerto Rican reformist talk about the crisis in Puerto Rico: https://youtu.be/vlmpe_6Qix0
The United States (US) government has used throughout our history these reformists to continue to maintain Puerto Rico as its colony. Note how Carmen Yulín Cruz does not answer emphatic and clearly whether the US government’s lack of urgency after Hurricane Maria is due to racism.
It is obvious to the whole world that it is precisely for that reason! How else could anyone explain why the US government has had Puerto Rico as its colony for the last 120 years! Why didn’t she say that?
And, why didn’t she say that the US government is in violation to the United Nations’ Charter and its 36 resolutions asking it to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans. She must know that! If not, here it is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=otzBslJLbI0
Because, as a reformist, she believes that the US government will some day be fair with Puerto Rico. But, the essence of colonialism is exploitation! Click here to be clear about this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dRHGdhRBG1M&t=299s
The best book that I could recommend to reformists to understand how the US government uses them to prolong our colonialism is “La lucha por la independencia de Puerto Rico” written in 1949 by Juan Antonio Corretjer.
Therefore, we continue to uncover Puerto Rican history, so that Puerto Ricans don’t follow these reformists. Puerto Rico independence is the only way for Puerto Ricans to solve their own problems.
The critical mass must unite to force the US government to comply with international law, because those who have withheld aid for 6 months to compel more Puerto Ricans to abandon their national territory don’t believe in LIBERTY OR IN JUSTICE FOF ALL! https://www.facebook.com/groups/1697349163904877/
