Why is government unresponsive to Puerto Ricans?

By José M. López Sierra – Puerto Rico


America Uncovered recently featured a news report called, “The corruption scandal in Puerto Rico.” Click on the following link to watch it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lpa-sQRtxNg

The problem is that America Uncovered isn’t uncovering anything!

The reason why the government is unresponsive to the needs of Puerto Ricans is because it is not supposed to. That government is for the exclusive needs of the United States Government (USG). And that is the real story that America Uncovered should be uncovering!

Most people are unaware that Puerto Rico has been a colony of the USG for the past 121 years. The USG military invaded Puerto Rico illegally in 1898 to specifically make Puerto Rico its colony.

What people call the Puerto Rico Government is a disguise for colonialism. Why do you think more Puerto Ricans live away from their national territory? Why do you think more soldiers are recruited for the United States (US) military in Puerto Rico than in any of the 50 states of the Union? It is not because Puerto Ricans are more patriotic to the US than the first class citizens of that nation!

We do have corruption in Puerto Rico, but, you can’t compare that with the USG’s crime against humanity for over a century against Puerto Ricans. The USG made sure to put in the 1898 Treaty of Paris the decision from the Dred Scott vs. Sanford case. For all practical purposes, Puerto Ricans have no right that the USG has to respect. https://www.judges.org/reflections-from-the-bench-roger-b-taney-one-decision-makes-a-legacy-part-ii/

The almost 9 million Puerto Ricans worldwide need to engage in permanent resistance to force the USG to comply with the United Nations’ (UN) Charter that prohibits colonialism, and 38 UN resolutions asking it to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans. http://webtv.un.org/watch/5th-meeting-committee-of-24-special-committee-on-decolonization/6051725003001/

We must, because those who use the media to hide their crime, don’t believe in LIBERTY AND IN JUSTICE FOR ALL! https://www.facebook.com/groups/1697349163904877/

Puerto Ricans have no right that the USG has to respect.

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.
