– August 18, 2015
War Against All Puerto Ricans was published in April 2015, in honor of the 50th anniversary of the passing of El Maestro, Don Pedro Albizu Campos.
On April 21, the anniversary date of Don Pedro’s passing, we gave a special broadcast with Congressman José Serrano, Juan Gonzalez and Amy Goodman on Democracy Now!
The War Against All Puerto Ricans web site went live on April 7, 2015…the same day that the book was published by Nation Books.
It offers an introduction to the book, an outline of the 20th century history of Puerto Rico, and nearly one hundred photos and videos from 1898 until today, documenting the “American Century” in Puerto Rico.
We also created a daily blog, that discusses current day issues in Puerto Rico.
What we didn’t expect was the overwhelming response…as of today (August 18, 2015), the web site has received over one million unique visitors.
This readership, in just over four months, is further proof that Puerto Ricans are highly aware of their heritage, and deeply concerned about the future of their island.
In addition to one million readers, the blog within the web site has developed a strong internal following – a community that cares about Puerto Rico, and the future of their island.
Here are the Top Five blog subjects that our readers responded to:
The Deep Secret, of the Puerto Rican Day Parade – 264,477 readers
New York Times Agrees: No More Jones Act in Puerto Rico! – 247,823 readers
Wall Street Makes Sure that Puerto Ricans CANNOT Afford Any Water – 199,308 readers
The Man Who Stole Puerto Rico – 42,850 readers
U.S. Government Prepares to STRANGLE Puerto Rico – 31,340 readers
Today, we want to thank all our readers for building this web site into a real community…where people share ideas, agree, disagree, and grow together.
We will continue building this community, and defending the interests of Puerto Rico…
The island that we came from, the childhood we all share, the country that we love and protect.
