Should a sovereign Puerto Rico be a US ally?

By José M. López Sierra – Puerto Rico


The following is a recent article advocating that Puerto Ricans should seek our sovereignty as a United States (US) ally. Click here to read Javier A. Hernandez’s article:

Javier is unquestionably making an excellent argument in favor of the US government (USG), but where in his argument is Puerto Rico’s inalienable right to her self-determination and independence? His hypothesis is let us do, the best that we could do, that the USG is willing to allow us to.

I wonder if Javier knows that the US government (USG) militarily invaded Puerto Rico on July 25, 1898 to make her its colony, and that she still remains an occupied nation today.

I wonder if Javier knows that the USG is committing a crime against humanity by never having complied with the United Nations’ (UN) Charter that prohibits colonialism in the past 75 years.

I wonder if Javier knows that the USG has ignored 39 UN resolutions asking it to return immediately Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans. 

I wonder if Javier knows that the USG is considered by the overwhelming majority of the nations of the world to be the biggest threat to peace.

I think that we should seek our sovereignty by engaging in permanent resistance, and then decide for ourselves with whom to ally.

Puerto Rico should have her sovereignty period!

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.
