The Boricua groups in Puerto Rico and in exile could learn an important lesson from the organizers of this rally. Towards the end of the activity, a spokesperson said that the key to our success will be our ability to create a united front. She asked that all who are not already actively involved in the resistance, to either join any one of the groups there, or to create one themselves.
Boricua groups fighting for independence, in general, want everyone to join their own groups, and are not willing to cooperate with other groups. Many groups have not understood that this kind of mentality will keep us colonized forever.
We need to support all groups that are fighting to establish a government that will represent 100% of its citizens, instead of just the 1%. Why? Because those who just want to represent the 1% don’t believe in LIBERTY AND IN JUSTICE FOR ALL!
