Puerto Rico is meant to be free and independent

Click on the above link to hear President Kennedys’ speech on how the United States (US) government should be.
President Kennedy condemned secrecy in government.  He invited transparency and welcomed citizens’ criticism.  He said that, “A mistake doesn’t become a mistake, until you refuse to correct it.”  And towards of the end of this speech, he said, “A man was born to be free and independent.”

Puerto Rico has never been free and independent.  For over 400 years, she was a colony of Spain.  For over 100 years, she has been a colony of the government of the United States.  The United States government has ignored 33 United Nations (UN) resolutions to immediately decolonize Puerto Rico, since it declared colonialism a crime against humanity.  Instead, the US government has jailed and kept incarcerated Puerto Rican political prisoner Oscar Lopez Rivera despite heavy international pressure to free him.  The US government has therefore proven to be no better than those governments it criticizes for human rights violations.  It has violated itself the human rights of Puerto Ricans for 116 years!

Join our 2nd Oscar – Mandela March in Puerto Rico on March 22, 2015 in to force the US government to comply with the UN resolutions.  It will be on the very day that the abolition of slavery is celebrated in Puerto Rico.  This peaceful protest is necessary because, those who have colonies don’t believe in justice for all!
