Cuba calls for an end to the colonial status of Puerto Rico

Book - 12-10

 

The Republic of Cuba has officially called upon the US to end its 118-year colonial regime in Puerto Rico.

The demand was delivered by Humberto Rivero, Cuba’s  ambassador to the United Nations…and was reported immediately throughout the international press.

According to Ambassador Rivero, Puerto Rico is headed for “a severe humanitarian crisis in which food, water and electricity may be rationed, and many lives will be lost.”

Ambassador Rivero denounced the US response to this looming crisis.

“Instead of triggering a process that would allow Puerto Ricans to develop self-determination and economic control of their own future,” said the Ambassador, the US is imposing a Financial Control Board which “only seeks to force Puerto Rico to pay money to Wall Street and several vulture funds.”

The Ambassador also noted that 118 years of colonial rule have failed to destroy the culture, dignity and nationalist sentiments of the Puerto Rican people.

ACTION IN THE UNITED NATIONS

On June 20, Ambassador Rivero acted upon these words…by introducing a UN resolution that the United States should create a path to independence for Puerto Rico.

The resolution was supported by representatives from Bolivia, Ecuador, Nicaragua, Syria and Venezuela…and was approved by the UN Committee of Decolonization.

It was also supported by the Non-Aligned Movement, which incorporates 120 of the 193 UN member nations, and by the 33 nations of the Comunidad de Estados Latinoamericanos y Caribeños (CELAC).

All of these nations and organizations agree with Cuba and its Ambassador Humberto Rivero: that Puerto Rico should no longer be a territory…a property… a colony of the US.

    I second PR leaving the US. Enjoy your independence in a 3rd world country. $72 billion dollars in debt is not because of the US, it is your inefficient politicians, corruption and inability to keep young people working on the island. Most PR’s want both ways – you can’t have both. Either become part of us/US or dont. But if you don’t, do not expect money, help or the free travel you currently enjoy. Your current situation is currently somewhere between Haiti and Cuba in terms of economics. Atleast the weather is nice.

  8. That our Cuban brethren have spoken in respects to our (Puerto Rican) apparent colonial status allows me to see that all eyes have not been swayed by the disingenuous rhetoric by biased U.S. observers who care not for our people, but merely see us as a collateral obfuscation in their unabating tyranny. The propaganda games of the U.S. continues with no true democracy to be had, but only beurocratic measures and word game semantics endeared towards the continued corruptive subjugation of a people that are too genuine in their address to their enemy. What enemy? The enemy who has incessantly robbed and spoiled us so that their pockets can be lined with blood money as they drink our tears and reduce us to 3rd world status. This is a poem of the cry of Puerto Rico.

    The Cry of Puerto Rico

    I cry, and the ocean rises,
    I weep, and campos bleeds my pain,
    I am called free, while Democracy enslaves me,
    I cry while the God called American rapes me,
    I will forever carry my pride as a doubled fruit of goodness,
    I call Democracy a Cross that I am crucified with until unspiked,
    I call hypocrisy hypocrisy because truth isn’t bridled by stained glory,
    I cry while my children drink death through neighbor’s pocketbooks,
    I yield not my soul to a killer’s smile of contempt and condescension,
    I pain and the distant shores govern me with shadows of sympathy,
    I speak, but the words are stolen and recycled in disdain,
    I am called “Equal” when needed, and called Foreign when required,
    I am an Angel of death for Wars, and a Free Slave for the syndicate,
    I cry tears and blood, and I cry stains of origin that cannot be removed,
    I am robbed, but I will war, I will bruise, but I will fight, I will be firstborn, so my death is not guaranteed, but I will be Boricua from Tahana (Taino) seed,
    I cry, but my tears don’t despair, ’cause I will be sovereign against the Red Lord’s affairs,
    I cry, and YHWH hears my cry, for I am the prodigal son Who God won’t deny.

  11. You can’t lead a horse to the river but you can’t force him to drink the water. Puerto Ricans do NOT want independence. They have a childlike mentality and they believe independence will spell their ruin. You can’t force a people to want independence if they don’t want it.

  15. If 2 cosmic entities could ever understand their respective century-old cultural rape, economic plunder and psychological battering and know exactly when to wipe each other’s blood and tears, it is Puerto Rico and Cuba.

    The last of Spain’s colonial daughters and scattered bastards in the azurine waters where the Caribbean Sea and Atlantic Ocean reach to each other, the 2 Islands were referred to long before 1898 as:

    “Alas del mismo pajaro”

    Translation: “Wings of the same bird”.

    Of course we don’t hear a word of the uniquely woven psychological, political and pragmatic delicate realities of the two “gemelas del espiritu” because today, the “faux-dialogues” concerning the 2 torn-apart sisters have been violently wiped off the polished salon table of intelligent, insightful, informed discourse and dumped into the gutter of politically-corrupt, profit-margin-driven, pseudo-cultural concerns spray-painted on the tattered shreds of the very soiled veil of “La Tino” unidad that has not existed in over 500 years.

  16. Los amigos de Estados Unidos deben ejercer sus buenos oficios para persuadir a su gobierno a actuar cónsono con las declaraciones sobre Puerto Rico de sus tres ramas constitucionales. Los aliados de EU han apoyado la contención de que desde 1952 Puerto Rico goza de gobierno propio y se encuentra asociado voluntariamente a ese país. Ahora, después de la admisión de que Puerto Rico depende totalmente del poder último del Congreso de EU, los aliados deben recomendarle a su amigo que permita al pueblo de Puerto Rico ejerser su derecho a la LIBRE DETERMINACIÓN E INDEPENDENCIA.
