What value does memory have if history isn’t important?

by José M. López Sierra – Puerto Rico


The fact of the matter is that history is what creates unity among people. Not knowing history creates divisiveness.

People who want to take advantage of you have no reason to educate you correctly. This is how you are kept from revolting.

The United States Government (USG) has used its absolute power over Puerto Ricans to shape their minds into believing that independence is bad for them. It is difficult for most Puerto Ricans to question the fact that, if independence is good for the majority of nations, why isn’t it good for Puerto Rico?

When have you ever heard the United States Government (USG) talk about that the United Nations’ (UN) Charter prohibits colonialism since 1945? Never!

When have you ever heard the USG talk about that it has violated the UN’s Charter for the past 73 years? Never!

When have you ever heard the USG talk about that it has ignored 37 UN resolutions asking it to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans? Never!

It is as though for the USG, these things never happened! And that is why they are not mentioned also in the United States media. Nor does the UN itself regularly broadcast live its own annual hearing to discuss Puerto Rico decolonization usually held on the Monday after Fathers’ Day.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=otzBslJLbI0

And if these things don’t exist for the USG, isn’t it time to move the UN out of the United States (US)? Why allow the US to make all that money off of the UN’s operations, if the USG is not going to comply with its resolutions? Why not put the UN in a nation that respects the UN’s Charter?

Isn’t it amazing that for 120 years the USG has violated Puerto Ricans’ human rights, but today wants to go to war with Venezuela, supposedly because her government is violating its peoples’ human rights?

The USG said that it invaded militarily Puerto Rico in 1898 to bring liberty to the Puerto Ricans. But the fact of the matter is that today, more Puerto Ricans live away from their national territory. The USG’s plan is the rid Puerto Ricans from Puerto Rico to repopulate her with the right kind of people. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dRHGdhRBG1M&t=44s

Let’s use our memory to learn our real history to engage in permanent resistance to force the USG to comply with the will of the international community. Get involved, because those who want to hide the truth don’t believe in LIBERTY AND IN JUSTICE FOR ALL! https://www.facebook.com/groups/1697349163904877/

Follow your dream or somebody else will make you follow his.

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.
