The so-called ex “Governor of Puerto Rico” Ricardo Roselló asked the United Nations (UN) to endorse the United States (US) proposed legislations to allegedly decolonize Puerto Rico. That is his “Plan B”, since the UN has never done anything else, but issue resolutions.
He is unable to understand that the US, as the one having committed the crime against humanity, is incapable of directing any real Puerto Rico decolonization.

After 77 years, and now in its 4th International Decade for the Eradication of Colonialism, the UN can only idly listen to Boricuas inform it of our suffering under US colonialism for the past 124 years.
There are today 41 UN resolutions asking the US to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans. If the US ever had the intentions of decolonizing Puerto Rico, she would have done so by now. And, if the UN ever had the ability to decolonize Puerto Rico, it would have already done so too.
Half of Puerto Ricans in Puerto Rico live in poverty, and more Boricuas live away than in our national territory. It’s time to do the opposite of, “Don’t push it”.
The better Plan B would be that the 9 million Boricuas worldwide engage in permanent resistance to force the US to comply with international law. We are the ones who have the inalienable right to self-determination and independence. https://todosunidosdescolonizarpr.blogspot.com/
Let’s push the US to comply with international law!
