What people need to understand is that colonialism is a crime against humanity, because it threatens world peace.
This is why international law gives those who live under colonialism the right to use whatever means necessary to decolonize themselves.
Under international law, which goes above all other laws, the United States government is the criminal, and not Puerto Rican political prisoner Oscar Lopez Rivera.
So we must continue to protest peacefully for the decolonization of Puerto Rico, because those who violate international law, don't believe in JUSTICE FOR ALL!
