Here is the simple truth about Puerto Rico that is not taught in US schools, so that Puerto Ricans could be exploited forever. You have dig up this history yourself, after you manage to decolonize your mind of 120 years of US colonialism.
The striking thing in this New York Times article is the fact that the most important reason for Puerto Rico’s devastation is never mentioned. No one can deny that the United States (US) government has illegally kept Puerto Rico as its colony since 1898. Puerto Rico doesn’t have a debt crisis, or a hurricane Maria crisis, or whatever other crisis the US government wants you to believe. Puerto Rico has a colonial crisis!
The US government unilaterally caused it. The United Nations (UN) declared colonialism a crime against humanity in 1960. The UN has issued thus far 36 resolutions asking the US government to immediately give Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Rico. Do you know that the US government has ignored these resolutions? Do you know that the US media and schools don’t report or teach that? If they would, they would have to say that the US government is guilty of committing a crime against humanity. The fact of the matter is that the US government is a terrorist state, and Oscar Lopez Rivera has the right to use whatever means necessary to decolonize his homeland.

US president Trump said that the Puerto Rico government is responsible for the devastation on the island. This is a lie. Puerto Rico can’t have a government, or a constitution, or a supreme court if she is a US colony. Why do you think there are more Puerto Ricans living away from Puerto Rico? Who really believes that Puerto Rico is being governed for the Puerto Ricans?
Join us in our permanent protests to force the US government to comply with the UN resolutions, because those who lie to hide their criminal acts don’t believe in LIBERTY AND IN JUSTICE FOR ALL! https://www.facebook.com/groups/1697349163904877/
