Who is Albizu Campos? Trailer

“It stands to reason- it stands to commonsense- that we must be a free nation in order to survive as a people. The future of those not yet born depends on respecting the independence of Puerto Rico. That respect alone—the respecting of Puerto Rico’s independence—is what Puerto Rican nationalism is all about.”
(1936)
