US Citizenship gets Puerto Ricans what?

by José M. López Sierra – Puerto Rico


Click on the following link to read an article about what Puerto Ricans have had to do on their own to save themselves from Hurricane Maria, but more lethally, the United States (US) government:

Do you know that US citizenship was forced on Puerto Ricans in 1917, after the Puerto Rico Assembly of Delegates rejected the US government’s offer? The Puerto Rican delegates were aware then that US citizenship was not going to be for the benefit of Puerto Ricans. And they were right!

Nobody talks about the fact that the US government is in violation of the United Nations’ Charter and 36 of its resolutions asking it to immediately give Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans.

Therefore, we will continue to protest to force the US government to stop committing this crime against humanity and comply with international law to eradicate colonialism.

We will need to create a tsunami of people to do so, because those who want to exploit others don’t believe in LIBERTY AND IN JUSTICE FOR ALL!

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.
