The 5th Oscar – Mandela March 2018 Committee
Would you like to be on the committee to organize the 5th Oscar – Mandela March 2018 in New York City (NYC)?
The goal is to begin to create a tsunami of people to force the United States government to comply with international law and decolonize Puerto Rico.
In order to get people to be part of the tsunami, they will have to know why this is important. Therefore, the purpose of the march is to draw attention to:
120 years of Puerto Rico colonialism
There are now more Puerto Ricans out than in our national territory
The US government takes out 14 times what it invests in Puerto Rico
There are 36 United Nations (UN) resolutions asking the US government to give Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Rican
The US govern is the terrorist by maintaining Puerto Rico as a colony and thus being a threat to world peace, and although…
The US press wants to make Oscar Lopez Rivera out to be the terrorist, he has dedicated his life to force the US government to comply with international law that prohibits colonialism.
The march is from Hunter College to the Ralph Bunche Park on 43rd Street and 1st Avenue is always on the Monday after Fathers’ Day. That is also the day the United Nations holds its annual hearing to discuss Puerto Rico decolonization. Therefore, we stay there all day at the park to speak with by passers Puerto Rican colonialism.
At 4pm, we have our rally to show our indignation that the US government’s continued unwillingness to decolonize Puerto Rico.
We need to involve the college students from New York, New Jersey and Connecticut, as well as all people in general. It would great if we could have university students in New York City to head this committee. Perhaps we could even have 3 committees, one in each of the above states.
I would be willing to go to New York to meet with the committee to make sure that we are ready for the march.
If you are interested in being a part of the 5th Oscar – Mandela March 2018 Committee, please let me know.
