by José M. López Sierra – Puerto Rico
The best way to force the United States government to comply with the United Nations’ 36 resolutions asking it to give Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans is by creating a tsunami of people to do that. That is a huge organizational job! What we propose is that people in the various communities around the city and around the world form their own Oscar – Mandela Committees.
Each could work independently doing outreach and educating people about Puerto Rico’s history and her current colonial relationship of 120 years with the US government. We could communicate with each other on the Internet and by telephone. Then when we need to get a tsunami of people to protest at a given place, we could be there.
It would be particularly great if we could get students to form these committees in their colleges and universities everywhere. We will need young people to get this job done! Would you like to know what students in Puerto Rico think about our present crisis?
I interviewed the spokespersons of the students’ groups responsible for closing down the University of Puerto Rico in protest of the Fiscal Control Board unilaterally imposed on Puerto Rico by the US government, and in favor of Puerto Rico decolonization.

We would like to hear from you to tell us what you this about our proposal, and / or to add to it to make it to even better!
We need to work together, because those who have a long history of committing crimes against humanity don’t believe in LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL!
