Don’t people know that the US government lied to the United Nations (UN) in 1953 by saying that Puerto Rico had attained self-government in 1952 with the Commonwealth to get her off the UN’s list of colonies?
Don’t people know that Puerto Rico has been a US colony for the past 121 years?
Don’t people know that more Puerto Ricans live off Puerto Rico, because their national territory is governed exclusively for US interests?
Don’t people know that the US government in 1898 determined that Puerto Ricans are an inferior race, and assigned Puerto Rico to the unincorporated territory status to avoid extending its Constitution to Puerto Ricans? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dRHGdhRBG1M&t=15s
Don’t people know that the UN deems colonialism a crime against humanity, and that the US government has been guilty of that for the past 74 years?

Join the tsunami of people to force the US government to comply with the UN Charter that prohibits colonialism, because those who joke about a crime against humanity, don’t believe in LIBERTY AND IN JUSTICE FOR ALL! https://www.facebook.com/groups/1697349163904877/
