Attempted to erase from history, the 1950 Puerto Rican Insurrection

Click on the link to read an excellent summary of the October 30, 1950 Puerto Rican Nationalist Insurrection.

The government of the United States blacks out from public awareness what it deems to go against its interests.  It did not want the world to become aware that Puerto Rico is a colony of the United States. 

Ten years later, the United Nations declared colonialism a crime against humanity.  Thus, the United States commits an international crime maintaining Puerto Rico colonized since then.  Continuing with the United States' government black out policy, the annual hearings held at the United Nations to discuss Puerto Rico decolonization are not televised in the United States or Puerto Rico.  Therefore, censorship is not only practiced in those other countries that don't believe in democracy and human rights!

On Saturday November 23, 2013 in Puerto Rico, we will have a peaceful protest for the liberation of our patriot and political prisoner Oscar Lopez Rivera.  We will march at 1:00 PM from the United States' Court in Puerto Rico to the Hiram Bithorn Stadium in Hato Rey.  We would be honored if you join us to demand, not only Oscar’s release from prison, but also the decolonization of Puerto Rico for which he has spent 32 years of his life fighting for.  The continual peaceful protests are indispensable, because those who have practiced 115 years of colonialism don’t believe in justice for all!
