What about the oldest colony?

By José M. López Sierra – Puerto Rico


The United Nations’ (UN) 74th General Assembly will be held in New York City in September 2019. The opening of the session will be on Tuesday 17th, with the general debates beginning on Tuesday, 24th.

The General Assembly is one of the six main organs of the United Nations, the only one in which all Member States have equal representation: one nation, one vote. All 193 Member States of the United Nations (see map ) are represented in this unique forum to discuss and work together on a wide array of international issues covered by the UN Charter, such as development, peace and security, international law, etc. In September, all the Members meet in the General Assembly Hall in New York for the annual General Assembly.

Why hasn’t the UN been able to decolonize the oldest and most populated colony existing today?

Do you know that when the UN had its annual hearing on Puerto Rico decolonization on Monday, June 24, 2019 at 10 AM the press said nothing about it? In case you missed it too, click on the following link to watch the morning session of the hearing. My petition is at 1 hour and 52 minutes of the video: http://webtv.un.org/watch/5th-meeting-committee-of-24-special-committee-on-decolonization/6051725003001/

However, the whole world knows that Puerto Ricans want, who they call “the governor of Puerto Rico”, to resign. What’s the difference? The United States Government (USG) wants you to know that, but not about Puerto Rico decolonization.

The USG has violated the UN’s Charter that prohibits colonialism for the past 74 years. Moreover, the USG has ignored 38 UN resolutions asking it to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans. So, why has that not happened?

The majority of Puerto Ricans have been brainwashed, during 121 years, into believing that Puerto Rico is not a US colony. A great example of that is the fact that, although more than 700,000 Puerto Ricans live in New York City, the New York Daily News, the New York Post and the New York Times said nothing about the UN’s hearing to discuss the USG’s crime against humanity for consistently refusing to decolonize Puerto Rico!

Half a million Puerto Ricans protested last Monday for the resignation of the USG’s colonial administrator in Puerto Rico, Ricardo Roselló, because they are aware of those crimes.

How many more Puerto Ricans would be protesting at the UN’s 74th General Assembly, if they only knew that the USG has committed a far greater crime, a crime against humanity, by maintaining Puerto Rico as its colony for over a century? For those wishing to protest, please watch the following video about your right of expression: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X015rA5i0TM&t=10s

The key to decolonizing Puerto Rico is the decolonization of our minds. The USG will not help you with that! You must do that on your own, because those who commit crimes against humanity, don’t believe in LIBERTY AND IN JUSTICE FOR ALL! https://www.facebook.com/groups/1697349163904877/

We must decolonize our minds ourselves!

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.
