Pedro Albizu Campos: the Movie

War Against All Puerto Ricans: Revolution and Terror in America’s Colony

 

There is a growing interest in making War Against All Puerto Ricans into a movie.

This might be the right time…so that the world can see the history of Puerto Rico, and see how the US has treated it, for the past 117 years.

The true information about Puerto Rico never gets reported…so perhaps the way to fight the dictatorship of a “Financial Control Board,” is with a movie that shows the real history of our island.

The filming of the movie would help our young people to re-discover their own history.

They would be excited that Benicio Del Toro, Jimmy Smits, Rosario Dawson, Rosie Perez, Zoe Saldana, Hector Elizondo, Braulio Castillo Jr., Ruben Blades, Joaquin Phoenix, Marc Anthony, Ricky Martin, Bruno Mars, Esai Morales, Andy Garcia and other great talents, might be portraying the heroes and villains of Puerto Rico.

The movie could premiere at the Cannes and Toronto film festivals: to let the whole world understand, the struggles and sacrifice of our people.

Pedro Albizu Campos is a major historical figure: in the same realm as Simón Bolívar, José Martí, and Nelson Mandela. It is time that his story is finally told.

The movie will focus on the life of Don Pedro, and his struggle to liberate Puerto Rico.

The people of the United States – and the whole world – need to understand Pedro Albizu Campos: what he lived, sacrificed, and died for.

If you agree with this, please leave a message here. Your message will be seen by film agents in Los Angeles and New York, who are discussing the possibility of a War Against All Puerto Ricans movie.

While you’re at it, here is a partial cast list for the movie. Who do you think should portray these characters? Who should direct the movie? What songs, and what musicians, should contribute to the soundtrack? Please let us know.

  3. Hi my name is Alexandra C. Echavarri. I was looking to see if this book had any plans to be made into a movie by someone here in PR. Now that I see there is interest I would love to be able to act in it since I am an actress from Puerto Rico. I would also suggest filming everything here on the island and hiering all local talents and local crews as Puertorricans need the work/exposure, after all it is our story. Maybe even suggesting that isntead of a tax exempt, that they just give any residuals or some insentives to our education programs, agriculture ext… What better way to bring this story to light than to actually hire all actors from PR. I love this book and I am very passionate about our history as many. I truly believe this movie will make a difference maybe even help get rid of the Jones act and many more things that don’t let us get back up.
    My acting website is http://www.alexandracristina.com

    I just got done filming here in PR next to Braulio Castillo and would live to have the opportunity yet again. Now more then ever to represent my home my heritage where I’m born and raised.

  4. Congratulations! I have read the book and I’m going to read it again, and again! I also encourage people in my Puerto Rican group to read the book. I will admit, born and raised in the US I was ignorant to all that pertained to Puerto Rico! The good, the bad, and the evil!

    Because of your book my eyes have been opened to the injustice our people have suffered in the past and unfortunately till this day. It has made me want to learn more about Puerto Rico. It has taught me to respect and love Mi patria, historia, cultura, tradiciones and most of all the respect I have for our Flag! Con orgullo and with a whole new view of being a Puerto Rican levanto mi bandera!
    Ahora, cuando levanto mi bandera tengo un nuevo sentido íntegro, mis puntos de vista, mi orgullo está en un nivel totalmente nuevo!

  5. The question should not be if it should be produced but when. We as a people need to know our past to define our future. We can no longer sit and wait for others to present our struggles truthfully. It is up to us. We must start a GoFundMe site and start the process of financing. We should also call on the Marc Anthony is, JLO’s, RMartin, etc to step up and do something that is positive por la raza.

    Nelson Denis I thank you for being a pioneer in bringing the truth to light.

  24. I bought this book and all the information left me speechless, sad and upset especially with the lapdog Luis Muñoz Marin. In some things I am not too shocked because the United States and its people have a big track record of discrimination and racism towards everything indigenous or different. But in the end their intentions have never been towards our best welfare that is why we are in our dire situation today plus the sellouts in the political seats and their agendas. Hopefully one day we can see an independent Puerto Rico living a sovereign life as it should have from the beginning and we can regain a little back of what was stolen from us as people and even more as Boricuas…

    Se interesó mucho y me dijo que con un buen libreto no tendría problema en hacerla. Buenos actores los tenemos, es hacer un filme que de veras honre su memoria y dé a conocer la cruda realidad sobre su lucha y el ser humano que defendió con su vida la Independencia de nuestra Patria, además la tragedia colonial que hemos y seguimos viviendo.

  51. Una Historia como esta debe de incluir la verdad de la vivencia del pueblo Puertorriqueño de la época. no remontarse solo a la ciudad o estar en el escenario de interior todo el tiempo. Es muy sabido que los Puertorriqueños eran la mescla de tres razas la Española. India y Africana. Don Albizus era parte de esa mescla de razas. Que durante ese tiempo los grandes intereses dominaban y esclavizaban a todos por igual amenos que fueran de la esfera alta y bien conocido. El fue a la primera guerra mundial con el ejercito de los Estados Unidos. Estudio Derecho en Boston EU. Conoció gente importantes y vio otros lugares es por eso que a su regreso a Puerto Rico y al ver el trato desigual a los isleño el trata de instruir al Pueblo de que le estaba aconteciendo. Los lugareños era esclavizados y mal pagados. Los Puertorriqueños y eran fáciles de identificar, pues por su pobreza no lucían a la moda, no solían tener buen calzado o ropa nueva. Este fue lo que calo hondo en el sentimiento de Don Albizu y ese sentimiento, ese menos precio que tuvieron los invasores Americanos al Pueblo conquistado y saqueado. La película debe de comenzar con la invasión americana a PR o por lo menos hacer una grafica de esa invasión y el posterior saqueo de la Isla. Es sabido Que el Grito de lares del 23 de Septiembre del 1868 fue un fracaso, pero sus lideres (Don Ramón Emeterio Bátanse y Sr.Manuel Rojas De Venezuela) establecieron su posición antes España. Pero en realidad es el sentimiento tan profundo que surge en Don. Albizus al ver a su pueblo esclavizado. La historia es una de nunca terminara.

    I fell in love with Albizo Campos and what he stood for. I remember telling my mother I wanted to be part of a revolution, to free my people on the island…and she would say, “Muchacha tu estas loca. You will be killed!” She recalled my grandfather going to underground meetings of the Nationalist party. You could be killed if you were part of such a group. She said it was a very scary time for our people.

I have only read the first chapter and I have to admit, it is a great, very revealing and the references are extensive and based on fact. A movie would DEFINITELY get this information to mainstream media. It would be very appreciated, though, to avoid the so called “movie magic”. Make it as legit to the book as possible, not just based on it. And yes, seeing puertorrican actors like Benicio del Toro play him would be amazing. He already played Che Guevara beautifully.

  98. The Puertorrican has in his collective memory many United States historical films, but none depicting its own history. Many puertorricans (about half) also live in poverty and are victims of very inadequte schooling. The combination of both these factors results in a cultural defficiency in PR with regard to our history and to the lack of local historical films .

    The figure of Pedro Albizu Campos is seen negatively due to a history of demonization of the independence movement. The gag law was an antidemocratic act that exemplifies that demonization. Thus this movie can change the average perception of puertorricans with regard to Don Albizu towards one that is more accurate.

While you’re at it please remember our brave soldiers that have been shipped to slaughter by US presidents they did not vote for, as we do not have the right to vote for elected officials in the mainland. Oh but please allow me to correct myself. We do vote for the puppet we send to Washington every four years. He has no vote, so he’s really representing his upper class. And please, don’t produce a film like Cerro Maravilla which for the most part portrayed Boricuas as naive, unintelligent and plebeyos. Boricuas are very proud and resourceful people. We have been under US influence for over 100 years. Yet we have maintained our vernacular and our traditions. Mind you that I’m saying we have been over 107 years under the most influential country in the free world. I by the way I disagree with our great writer Abelardo Diaz Alfaro “el Josco ” still lives. He is at the bottom of “El Farallon” waiting for a new generation to uplift him. He did not commit suicide as a cop out to not have to deal with Anglo Saxon culture. Please take all this into account when depicting Puerto Rico’s history. Just for the record this is not about Yankee go home. I love America, as I was raised in NJ in the sixties.

Puerto Rican women were the first to use the birth control pill, it was provided by the pharmaceutical company for free in order to keep the birth rate down. Witnessing long lines of methadone programs for those on heroin so they can kick their habits. Did they? These programs are still implemented, what have they accomplished to help them? Also, keeping our people suppressed from getting a job or attending universities, the Welfare dept in PR going door to door, offering enrollment for food stamps and cash aid to young mothers and grandmothers… So, yes, I am and we are, READY for this movie!

Unfortunately, much of what I learned in school is traditional and conventional history, where we are taught to laud the merits of a Luis Muñoz Marin and despise the antics of revolutionaries such as Don Pedro. I think it is of the utmost importance that we send the message of the real history of Puerto Rico. With over 5 million Puerto Ricans in the diaspora and the 3.5 here on the island, I have no doubt that this movie would be a commercial success. It is a story of human nature and I don’t see why it would not be attractive to other sectors of society, particularly if you get together a stellar cast of Puerto Rican actors who have made it big in Hollywood. I visualize a Lin Manuel Miranda or a Benito del Toro as Don Pedro in a similar scope as we saw him do Che Guevarra. Jeniffer Lopez can perform as Laura Meneses.

Tanto la historia como el propósito deben ser producto de un compromiso con la libertad de nuestro pueblo sin caer en propagandismo partidista. Siempre, cuenten conmigo.Nelson W. Canals, Expresidente del Comite Nacional Pro Libertad De Los Presos Nacionalistas’ Lolita Lebrón, Oscar Collazo, Andrés Figueroa Cordero, Irvin Flores y Rafael Cancel Miranda.

  184. Deben enfatizar los logros de Albizu y el PN tras la huelga de 1933-34. De ahi es donde nace la gran persecución a los independentistas puertorriqueños. Luego, la revuelta de 1950…la cual los propositos principales eran denunciar la condición colonial de Puerto Rico ante el mundo y que E. U. no considerara anexarnos, como eventualmente hizo con Alaska y Hawaii. Tambien las consecuencias que tuvieron que pagar los nacionalistas en la cárcel de La Princesa.

  185. That would be a great idea as long as is along the lines of a Micheal More documentary and not a sensationalistic Hollywood tale. The truth cannot be overshadowed

  186. I think it’s a green idea, some Puerto Rican don’t even know there own heritage and why the island was called Puerto Rico in the first place.

  187. I’ve been thinking the same thing for such a long time. If there can be a movie out there about Hector LaVoe, then why not have one about Don Pedro.

  188. The best person to play Campos might be Benicio Del Toro, it is great that we can tell the story of a great patriot of Puerto Rico, you got my support.

  189. Is making “War Against All Puerto Ricans” a good idea? No, it is a great idea!!! What better homage to pay to the Puerto Rican experience than to bring this book to the big screen? Puerto Ricans have been under served even though we have been a part of the American nation ever since we helped her during the Revolutionary War era. Our sons and daughters, brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers, friends and neighbors have all aided, contributed, and help build the great nation that has igmored us. We do not look to right past wrongs against our antecedents, we look to be regarded as equals in the modern world. Our pride in our heritage should be enough to convince anyone to make a film about a man who’s name is still spoken with awe and reverence. Don Pedro’s legacy needs to be shared with the world at large to further show everyone how mankind’s great contributors will always rise to the surface regardless of the outcomes.

  192. Puerto Ricans need this. El maestro was a key figure that many people have little to no idea who he was. This is a part of our history that should be taught and seen.

  193. I think it’s a great idea to film this movie . To let everyone know the struggles Puerto Ricans had in this country . My father is from Puerto Rico and he told me the struggles that our people put up with . We fought for are rights and also other Latinos rights too so the whole world needs to know that and this movie will do that

  194. This should be an easy discussion. A great leader of his people, perhaps the last one this island nation had trying to assure independence for his people against the most powerful government in the world. For this thousands of his fellow countrymen where subjected to surveillance just for advocating independence. Todays financial crises in the island makes this a timely and long overdue about this misunderstood and mischaracterized leader who stands among the other Latin American greats. Plus i and millions others will watch

  195. Saludos Sr. Nelson Denis
    Antes que nada quisiera felicitarle por el éxito que ha estado teniendo con su libro Guerra Contra Todos Los Puertorriqueños, pero también darle las gracias por su labor por la justicia histórica en nuestro país. Es evidente que ya llegaron los tiempos de reivindicar la figura de el maestro Albizu Campos y ubicarlo en el lugar que le corresponde en la historia de nuestro pueblo, y en la historia de la patria grande: como el último de los libertadores de Nuestra Ámerica.
    Quisiera proponerle para interpretar la egregia figura de Albizu Campos en la película que se está considerando hacer al actor Teófilo Torres. Aquí en Puerto Rico él hizo unos monólogos basados en los discursos de Albizu publicados en el libro La Palabra Como Delito de Ivonne Acosta. Yo logré verlo en varias ocaciones y le puedo decir que aquí en Puerto Rico no hay un actor más capacitado para interpretar la figura de Albizu Campos con la proyección y veracidad que requiere el personaje.
    Le deseo mucha salud y que siga abriendo camino “con machete en mano”, para la libertad de nuestro pueblo.
    ¡Felicidades!

  199. Se me parraron los pelos. I got goosebumps! It’s about time they made a movie and let the people know the real struggles of Puerto Rico and our people. From the control of Spain, Spanish – American War, El Grito de lares, Sugar cane workers strike, Ponce Massacre, Stand off at the Saloon, The encarceration and torture of Don Pedro Albizu Campos, Lolita Lebron, sterilization of women, The Borinqueneers and so much more… I am lookin forward to it #makeithappen

  200. As I read this powerful book I was overcome with anger to what was done to our people and what is being done to our people now. I was already filled with pride for being Boricua this book solidified my pride a hundred times over. I always felt a disconnect to my beautiful country because I was born stateside and our people lacked the true history of our people. This book has opened my eyes to the reality of our people as it tells the rich history, the heroes, the warriors, and the atrocities that our people have gone through and how it affects us today. This powerful book has prompted me to learn more about our history. ¡Despierta, Boricua¡ “El yanqui cree que cuando el ser humano se depriva del bollo de pan, se rinde, se humillará y se dejará ser pateado.” -Albizu Campos
