  1. The Second Oscar – Mandela March in New York City 2015

    We will be having our 2nd Oscar – Mandela Protest March on Monday, June 22, 2015. We will start marching peacefully at 9 AM from Hunter College on East 68th Street and Lexington Avenue, to East 43rd Street and Lexington Avenue. We will then go East (turning left) to end up at the Ralph Bunche Park on First Avenue (across from the United Nations).

    We will be at the park until 5 PM. We will be giving out flyers and talking to people about who Puerto Rican political prisoner Oscar López Rivera is. We will also be educating the public about Puerto Rico’s colonial relationship with the government of the United States (US).

    Most people don’t know that every year, usually on the Monday after Fathers’ Day, the United Nations holds its hearing about the decolonization of Puerto Rico. The petitioners will usually join our protest after this meeting.

    The UN determined in 1960 that colonialism is a crime against humanity. Since then, the UN has issued 33 resolutions asking for the US government to immediately decolonize Puerto Rico. The US government has ignored these resolutions. What kind of democracy is that?

    The US government tries to keep these hearings a secret. What we are trying to do is to get them out of the closet. The UN is in its 3rd decade trying to make the world colony-free. Please help us!

    Most people also don’t know that the United States government takes out 14 times more money than what it invests in Puerto Rico. But, that is what colonies are for!

    This savage exploitation impedes Puerto Rico’s ability to provide opportunities for Puerto Ricans in Puerto Rico. That is why there are now more Puerto Ricans living away from Puerto Rico than in their homeland.

    Oscar López Rivera has been incarcerated for 34 years for his struggle to decolonize Puerto Rico. Since colonialism is an international crime, international law gives Oscar the right to use whatever means necessary to decolonize his homeland. Nelson Mandela was incarcerated for 27 years for doing the same thing as Oscar. This is why we say, Oscar López Rivera is our Nelson Mandela!

    United Partners for Puerto Rico Decolonization invites the public to be part of the tsunami of people that will be necessary to make the US government comply with the UN resolutions. These annual protests in Puerto Rico and at the UN are absolutely necessary, because, those who maintain colonies, don’t believe in justice for all!

  2. Good day, on more time! I’m at my PC now, before on cellphone. Before I found out about your book, a friend from PR posted information that prompted me to prepare this post.

    https://hrexach.wordpress.com/2015/04/13/8-atrocities-committed-against-puerto-rico-by-the-us-i-didnt-know-about-all-of-these/

    I’m a strong believer in “synchronicity”! After this the information about your book came to me. My thinking is heading in a total different direction now. I’m wondering what will happen to our Island …. I don’t see anything good happening in the USA, hence, it may flow down there too. As of now, I must confess that I don’t know that much about details in PR but the “sounds” that I hear are not good.

    Anyway, it’s time for me to let you go. Hope to hear back from you when you have time! Abrazos!!

  3. You’re welcome. My full name is Maria Hortensia Rexach. I’m a retired physician after almost 40 years. Interestingly, the last 28 years I worked for the Veterans Administration. Retired in 2013.
    I’ve been surrounded by Americanism all my life. I was born in 1950, in Santurce. What you have written about happened during my early years & childhood …. I knew some of what happened in the Island later through some history. I’m trying to picture the eras around my Dad’s time. But never in the detail you have researched & documented.
    This is why I’m so into the book. I’m Learning so much! As I read, I think about my Dad & also can see relate it to what is happening in the Middle East now & the American “invasion” & war.
    Would love to find a book similar to yours relating Hawaii’s, Guam’s & The Phillipines’ history.
    I’m rambling …. sorry! But your book is making me think so much. This second time around, I’m even reading your references!
    I knew about El Maestro, a bit, but not all these details. It’s abhorrent … all that has been done, it’s still carried on …. and the “superiority” continues.
    I do hope you don’t mind my rambling! This history has become very important to me now …. in my golden years.
    Now I understand a bit of my Dad’s comments through his life. Thanks for writing this book, thanks for being here & “putting up” with me.

    By the way, Horty came from Hortensita. My 5th grade American nun said it was to hard for her & shortened it to Horty.
    Have a wonderful day!!
