vista 2014 sobre la descolonización de Puerto Rico en la ONU oprimiendo este
Sesión de la tarde:
Por eso tenemos que olvidarnos de las elecciones en Puerto Rico. No puede haber democracia en una colonia. Debemos de todos unirnos para hacer por lo menos 3 protestas pacifica al año, a nivel de tsunami, hasta que descolonicemos a Puerto Rico.
La primera será una marcha en Puerto Rico hasta el Tribunal de Estado Unidos cada 22 de marzo cuando celebramos el Día de la Abolición de la Esclavitud. El segundo será otra marcha el día antes de la vista anual sobre la descolonización de Puerto Rico en la ONU. La tercera será una protesta en Nueva York en el mismo día en que se celebra la vista sobre la descolonización de Puerto Rico. Y por supuesto, estaríamos dispuesto de unirnos a todas las demonstraciones para excarcelar a Oscar López Rivera.
¡Estas protestas son necesarias, porque los que tienen colonias no creen en la justicia para todos!

Esmeralda wonders, at the end of her article, about what would happen if Puerto Ricans voted against independence and statehood. She has no reason to wonder about that, because there is no way that could happen.
Puerto Rico is a colony of the United States. This political relationship is a crime against humanity according to international law. That means that the United States government is committing this crime by maintaining Puerto Rico as its colony for the past 116 years. To make matters worse, the US is a repeated offender. The US government has ignored 33 United Nations (UN) resolutions asking it to immediately decolonize Puerto Rico.
It is important to note that the UN has never asked the US to conduct a plebiscite. The UN hasn't because it has already determined that it is illegal to have a colony. The solution for this crime is to set that colony free or decolonize her. Therefore, Puerto Ricans could never be against independence for Puerto Rico, because, legally they can't, even if they wanted to.
As far as statehood, that question would have to wait until Puerto Rico obtains her independence. After that, she could decide that issue.

The following link is for the afternoon session:
We invite all those who believe as the UN does that colonialism is a crime against humanity because it is a threat to world peace to peacefully protest at least 3 times a year until we decolonize Puerto Rico.
The first one will be a march in Puerto Rico to the US Courthouse on March 22 – The Abolition of Slavery Day. The second one will be another march in Puerto Rico on the day before the UN hearing concerning the decolonization of Puerto Rico. The third one will be a protest in New York City on the day that the UN has its annual hearing about the decolonization of Puerto Rico. Of course, we will also support all demonstrations for the release of our Puerto Rican political prisoner Oscar López Rivera.
These protests are absolutely necessary, because 116 years of Puerto Rico colonialism means that the US government doesn't believe in justice for all!
