¿Qué consenso puertorriqueño?

¿Qué consenso puertorriqueño?
por José M. López Sierra
Todo el mundo dice querer un consenso puertorriqueño. ¡Otros hasta dicen tenerlo! Pero, ¿Dónde está?
Algunos creen que lo primordial es evitar que el gobierno de Estados Unidos nos espete la Junta de Control Fiscal. Otros creen que tenemos que derrocar la Ley de Cabotaje. Otros creen que tenemos que sacar al Gobernador de Puerto Rico Alejandro García Padilla de La Fortaleza. Y otros creen que tenemos que asegurarnos que gane Hilary Clinton a la presidencia de Estados Unidos, para que no sea el loco y racista Donald Trump.
Pero nadie está hablando de que para un proceso de descolonización ser válido baja la ley internacional tiene que surgir del mismo pueblo colonizado. Si estaríamos claro de eso, y supiéramos que tenemos el derecho inalienable bajo la ley internacional de usar todos los medios necesarios para descolonizarnos, tendríamos ese consenso indispensable para liberarnos.
Dado el hecho de que el gobierno de Estados Unidos ha ignorado 34 resoluciones de la Organización de Naciones Unidas (ONU) pidiéndole que descolonice inmediatamente a Puerto Rico, sabemos por seguro que ese gobierno no cree en la JUSTICIA PARA TODOS.
Ese gobierno ha usado su poderío económico y militar para imponernos su voluntad y para violar nuestro derecho y violar la voluntad internacional. Dado esa realidad indiscutible, hace ya mucho tiempo que los puertorriqueños deberíamos haber impuesto nuestra voluntad sobre el gobierno de Estados Unidos. ¿Cómo haríamos eso?
Un tsunami de nosotros debemos de salir a la calle para marcha y protestar pacíficamente y permanentemente para que se nos respecte nuestro derecho inalienable a la autodeternacion e independencia. Debemos insistir que el proceso de nuestra descolonización sea según la ley internacional democráticamente acordado en el 1960 por la ONU. Ese consenso, resolveríamos, además de nuestras divisiones que nos ha mantenido estancado por 118 años en el coloniaje, el problema de la Junta de Control Fiscal, la Ley de Cabotaje, el gobernador, y el loco y racista Donald Trump.
Nuestra salvación colectiva vendrá cuando aprendamos a confiar en nosotros misma, como en el poema de Rafael Cancel Miranda, “Sed tu propio sol.”
Vea la vista de la ONU sobre la descolonización de Puerto Rico por WIPR 940 AM y el Canal 13 Televisión de Puerto Rico el lunes, 20 de junio de 2016 de 9 a 5 PM. Esta transmisión histórica se hará todos los año para sacar del closet a la colonia más vieja del mundo.

What Puerto Rican consensus?
by José M. López Sierra
Everyone says he or she wants a Puerto Rican consensus. Others even say that they have it! But, where is it?
Some believe that our biggest problem is avoiding the United States (US) government’s imposition of its Financial Control Board. Others believe that we have to do away with the law requiring us to use US ships for the importation of goods. Others believe that we have to get rid of Puerto Rico’s Governor Alejandro García Padilla. And still others believe that we must make sure that Hilary Clinton becomes the next president of the United States, to avoid that crazy and racist Donald Trump.
But nobody is talking about the fact that for a decolonization process to be valid under international law, it must originate from the colonized people. If we were clear about that, and knew that we had the inalienable right under international law to use any means necessary to decolonize ourselves, we would have that indispensable consensus for our liberation.
Given the fact that the US government has ignored 34 United Nations’ (UN) resolutions asking it to immediately decolonize Puerto Rico, we know for sure that it does not believe in JUSTICE FOR ALL!
This government has used it economic and military power to impose its will on us, and violate our right and the will of the international community. Given this irrefutable reality, it has long been time for Puerto Ricans to impose our will on the US government. How do we do that?
A tsunami of us should vote with our feet to permanently and peacefully march and protest that our inalienable right to self-determination and independence be respected. We should insist that our decolonization process be in accordance with the 1960 international law democratically adopted by the UN. This consensus would resolve, along with the division that has stagnated us with 118 years of colonialism, the problems of the financial board, the maritime shipping law, the Puerto Rico governor, and the crazy and racist Donald Trump.
Our collective salvation will come only when we realize that we must confide in ourselves, like in Rafael Cancel Miranda’s poem, “Be your own sun.”
Watch the UN’s hearing on Puerto Rico decolonization on WIPR 940 AM and on Channel 13 Puerto Rican Television on Monday, June 20, 2016 from 9 to 5 PM. This historic broadcast will occur every year from now on to take out the closet the oldest colony in the world.

Dear Partner,

Dear Partner,

Now that the First Oscar – Mandela March in Puerto Rico is history, we can now begin to work on making an even bigger success of The First Oscar Mandela Protest in New York City. This year’s Puerto Rican Day Parade in New York City a week before our protest will be dedicated to our political prisoner Oscar López Rivera.

On Monday, June 23, 2014, the United Nations (UN) will be discussing again Puerto Rico’s colonial relationship with the United States. The UN is in its third decade trying to eradicate colonialism from the world, because of the belief that it constitutes a threat to world peace. Since this date is a week later than usual, our committee decided to have 2 protests this year.

On the Monday, June 16, 2014, the day after Fathers’ Day, we will have our first protest in the park across from the UN on 46th Street and First Avenue from 8 AM to 5 PM to show the world that we too believe that colonialism is a crime against humanity. On the same day of the hearing, Monday June 23, we will have the second one. We will have a press conference in New York City to inform the public of the latest details of these event. We will need as many people at the protest as possible to make the government of the United States (US) comply with the 32 UN resolutions asking the US to decolonize immediately Puerto Rico. After this many resolutions, it is obvious that the US does not want to.

President Obama recently showed the government of the United States’ hypocrisy about human rights. In his memorial ceremony speech, he had only praise for Nelson Mandela. He, however, has refused, despite the enormous pressure from Puerto Rico and the rest of the world, to release from prison Oscar López Rivera who is doing exactly what Mandela did. Oscar has already spent 6 more years in prison than the 27 that Mandela served. The US is happy when other countries decolonize their colonies, but the US wants to keep hers. What kind of democracy is this? Obviously, those who have colonies don’t believe in justice for all.

Please tell your friends about this important protest for Oscar López Rivera’s release from prison, and to achieve what he has spent his life on, the decolonization of Puerto Rico.

We will have a sheet of paper so that whoever who wants to get involved in the planning of this yearly permanent event in New York City can provide us with your contact information. If you wish, you can also email me right now at jlop28vislophis@yahoo.com.

We look forward to greeting old and new partners in our struggle to provide real justice for all!

Sincerely,
José M López Sierra
