Those who accept colonialism do not believe in justice for all! Now that we know that
the political parties will not solve this problem; I invite you to join the non-violent protest to demand that the United States (US) decolonize Puerto Rico (PR) immediately. It will be on Monday, June 17, 2013 from 8 AM to 5 PM outside the United Nations (UN) visitors entrance located on 46th Street and First Avenue in New York City.
The UN has determined that colonialism is a crime against humanity in 1960 under Resolution 1514 (XV). Thats why the UN celebrates every year a hearing about Puerto Rico decolonization. Every year the UN puts forth a resolution asking the US to decolonize PR. Despite 30 of these resolutions, PR is still the oldest and most populated colony in the world! It is obvious by now that the US is not going to decolonize PR just because the UN asks.
Through education, we must create a domestic and international solidarity with this cause to pressure the US to do what historically she has refused to do. This is why we need everyone who also believes that colonialism is a crime against humanity to join the protest to demand compliance to international law!
Puerto Rico has been a colony of the US for 114 years. The US intention is to keep PR a colony forever unless we do something about it. It is important to note that: democracy isnt what a government does. Democracy is what people do!
President John F. Kennedy said,Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said,Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice anywhere. These ideas, of course, are the reasons why the United Nations was created after World War II.
It is up to us to defend the fundamental human rights that promote world peace. The tragedy of doing nothing is that we will have the kind of government that we deserve!
