Why the toppling of statues?

By José M. López Sierra – Puerto Rico


The toppling of statutes in the United States (US) means that many citizens are becoming aware that our country was founded on the genocide of indigenous people, despite the institutionalized state brainwashing in its educational system. The people are not proud of their history, and wish to not glorify it.

Trump wants to put anyone who topples a statue in jail for 10 years. That is, because Trump only represents the 1% of US citizens who have always benefited from the status quo!

This 1% club has been behind maintaining Puerto Rico as a US colony for the past 121 year! The US government (USG) has ignored 38 United Nations’ (UN) resolutions asking it to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans. Colonialism is a crime against humanity! http://webtv.un.org/watch/5th-meeting-committee-of-24-special-committee-on-decolonization/6051725003001/

Only “We the People” could change the course of our country. The 1% will not help us change the status quo, because they are the only ones making huge profits out of the crisis that we are trying to survive through. We must unite, because those who only think of themselves, have never wanted LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL! www.TodosUnidosDescolonizarPR.blogspot.com

The People want a different world.

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.
