Puerto Rico plebiscite: a trap to maintain the status quo

PUERTO RICO: Plebiscito trampa para mantener la colonia « Ruinas Digitales – Portal sobre medios de comunicación peronistas de la década del 70.

This is not a recent essay, but it does, however, express the fundamental problem with the use of a plebiscite to decolonize a colony. 

The colony needs to be able to decide for herself what destiny she wants to persue.  That would be  imposible to occur as long as it is occupied by the imperial power. 

The imperial power must turn over total control to the colony, free all her political prisoners, and leave the colony along with its repressive operations.  Anything short of this, as the title suggests, is a trap!

We look forward to meeting you on June 2012!
