Click on the above link to see a recent video my daughter discovered of United States President Obama speaking at the United Nations.
Everything that President Obama said in this video is hypocrisy. The United States (US) government has done exactly the same thing to Puerto Rico that it is now condemning Russia for. And the United Sates "free press" remains silent!
For 116 years, Puerto Rico has been a colony of the United States through a military invasion and occupation. The United States has used terrorism to keep Puerto Rico colonized. The US government lied to the United Nations in 1953 to remove Puerto Rico from its list of colony. And, the US government pretends to want to decolonize Puerto Rico through the use of plebiscites.
With regards to Puerto Rico, the US government says that the United Nations (UN) has no jurisdiction in its colonial relationship with Puerto Rico. It says that nonsense, because the US government wants to keep Puerto Rico colonized forever.
The fact of the matter is that colonialism is solely under the jurisdiction of international law. The fact of the matter is that the UN declared colonialism a crime against humanity in 1960. The fact of the matter is that the UN has asked the US through 33 resolutions to immediately decolonize Puerto Rico. All those Obama lies about respecting international law in this video has never been practiced by the US government with regards to Puerto Rico.

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!
