Why discuss PR’s future within US parameters?

By José M. López Sierra – Puerto Rico


Puerto Rico decolonization is almost always discussed within the parameters of United State (US) law. The US government (USG), the one who committed the crime against humanity by colonizing Puerto Rico in 1898, is in complete control over our decolonization. Does anyone see a conflict of interest here? Click on the following link to see what I mean: https://youtu.be/7wWtSCKC9ag

A nation’s inalienable right to self-determination and independence means that it must begin from the ground up. And the best way for that to happen is by using international law, as opposed to US law. The above video depicts the chaos that you will get when you use US law. US law, obviously, will exclusively benefit the USG. But that does nothing for Puerto Rico’s real self-determination!

The video never mentioned the law that has sole jurisdiction in the matter. Had it done so, the path towards Puerto Rico decolonization would have been explicitly clear.

The United Nations’ Charter prohibits colonialism since 1945. That means that the USG has never complied with the UN’s Charter for the past 76 years!

Moreover, the UN has asked the USG, in 39 UN resolutions, to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Rican people. The USG has ignored them. Obviously, by not complying, the USG wants to maintain Puerto Rico as its colony forever! http://webtv.un.org/watch/5th-meeting-committee-of-24-special-committee-on-decolonization/6051725003001/ 

Therefore, from the ground up, Puerto Ricans must engage in permanent resistance to force the USG to comply with international law. If we don’t, and if we allow the USG to control our future, we will continue to be a US colony, now, tomorrow and forever! http://www.todosunidosdescolonizarpr.blogspot.com/

To keep Puerto Rico colonized.

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.
