President Clinton denies that Puerto Rico is a colony of the United States!
Click on the link to read President Clinton’s argument that Puerto Rico is not a colony of the United States.
Former President Clinton denies that Puerto Rico is a colony of the United States. He argues that in 1952, Puerto Rico became self-governing under the current political status called, “Estado Libre Asociado de Puerto Rico". He back to defining words, like he did with the word is.
President Clinton is a lawyer. Over 95% of the nations that comprise the United Nations (UN) have issued 32 UN resolutions asking the government of United States of America to immediately decolonize Puerto Rico. Even if President Clinton were correct, and history does not support his allegations, wouldn’t principles of democracy make it imperative that Puerto Rico be decolonized?
President Clinton is using the same arguments that the United States used in 1953 to persuade the United Nations to take Puerto Rico off the its list of colonies. Since then, the United Nations has realized that Puerto Rico has never stopped being a colony of the United States. This is why on every Monday after Fathers’ Day, the United Nations celebrates its annual hearing to discuss Puerto Rico decolonization until it is accomplished. Not many people know about this hearing, since it is kept quiet in the news media. Did you know that this UN hearing about Puerto Rico decolonization is not telecast on Puerto Rico television, not even on the Puerto Rico government station (WIPR)!
The United Nations has never put back Puerto Rico on its list of colonies. I believe this has been a big mistake! The United Nations is on its third decade trying to eradicate colonialism from the world. If the UN is really serious about it, it should starts speaking clearly about the issues, and put Puerto Rico back on that list. It would then make it harder for people like President Clinton, who likes to define words to his convenience, to deceive us over and over again!
Join in 2 peaceful protests a year until Puerto Rico is decolonize, because those who practice or accept colonialism do not believe in justice for all!
