On the Puerto Rican Day Parade & Festivities in NYC
Puerto Rican flags everywhere. But no independence. Puerto Ricans are culturally and spiritually alive, but politically and economically dying. To this day, Puerto Rico, excuse me Boriken, is still a colony.
Don’t let “commonwealth” fool you. The only thing common between the U.S. and P.R. are the millions of oppressed and colonized Puerto Ricans living on both lands still floating in political limbo. Puerto Ricans need just as much freedom and justice as the rest of us.
¡Viva Pedro Albizu Campos! ¡Viva Guillermo Morales! ¡Viva Ramon Betances! ¡Viva Lolita Lebron! Viva los Young Lords! Free Oscar Lopez Rivera! ¡Y Que Viva Puerto Rico Libre!
