US propaganda about PR democracy

José M. López Sierra – Puerto Rico


The United States (US) has held Puerto Rico as her colony for the past 125 years, and against international law. In the same year that the US entered World War II after the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, the US made the following propaganda film about a so-called “democracy” in Puerto Rico. Please click on the following link to watch it:

Many people don’t know that the Treaty of Paris of 1898, still in effect today, states that the rights of the Puerto Ricans shall be determined by the US. How could this film then talk about democracy in Puerto Rico? On the contrary, the treaty makes it very clear that Puerto Ricans are US slaves!

Such is the case that the US has consistently ignored 42 United Nations resolutions asking her to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans. Far from Puerto Rico enjoying democracy, the US is committing a crime against humanity by refusing de decolonize her!

Many Nazi’s were executed for committing crimes against humanity as a result of the Nuremberg Trials. The US, however, has enjoyed immunity from her crimes thus far.

US colonialism in Puerto Rico will persist, until the 9 million Puerto Ricans worldwide engage in permanent resistance to force the US to comply with international law. Isn’t it ironic that the US says she cares more about Taiwan’s inalienable right to their self-determination than Puerto Rico’s?  

Joseph Goebbels learned a lot from US propaganda. However, like with the Third Reich, her propaganda is becoming more naked.

Propaganda said a million times is still propaganda.

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.
