The US lie about Puerto Rico

By José M. López Sierra – Puerto Rico


It is a lie that Puerto Rico has a government, a constitution, and is a democracy. Nothing could be further from the truth. Why do you think more Puerto Ricans live away from their national territory? The fact of the matter is that Puerto Rico is governed for the interest of the United States Government (USG).

The USG decided in 1898 that it wanted the last 4 remaining Spanish colonies. It provoked the American – Spanish War to take them away. The US Congress said that Puerto Ricans are an inferior race. Puerto Rico has been a United States (US) colony for the past 121 years!

Puerto Ricans are forced to leave their national territory in order to exercise full US citizens’ rights.  Puerto Ricans often leave their homeland, or join the US military, because colonialism does allow Puerto Rico to create jobs for Puerto Ricans.

Puerto Ricans forced Ricardo Roselló to resign as the “so-called governor” of Puerto Rico. That is a lie! Those called governors of Puerto Rico are the USG’s colonial administrator of its colony. Why do you think Puerto Rico got stuck with a Fiscal Control Board?

So many people are talking about who will be Puerto Rico’s next governor? That is fake news!

The real news will be whether Puerto Ricans will realize the lie, and engage in permanent resistance to force the USG to comply with the United Nations’ (UN) Charter that prohibits colonialism since 1945, and comply with 38 UN resolutions asking it to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans.

If what Ricky did was enough to get him out, wouldn’t the USG’s crime against humanity for over a century be enough to get 9 million Boricuas worldwide to kick the USG out of Boriken?

Dare we live the truth?

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.
