War Against All Puerto Ricans: Inside the U.S. Crackdown on Pedro Albizu Campos & the Puerto Rico Nationalist Party

I remember growing up and being taught that Albizu Campos was a terrorist.

He was the first Puerto Rican to attend Harvard, where, upon graduating as valedictorian, he was denied the right to speak on account of the color of his skin. When he was offered an enormous bribe to discontinue agitating on behalf of agricultural laborers, he turned down the pieces of gringo silver lapped up by the Puerto Rican quislings we lionize today (looking at you, Luis Muñoz Marín), choosing instead to continue struggling for the liberty and dignity of all Puerto Ricans. As a reward for his tireless struggle to end colonial oppression, he got to spend the rest of his life undergoing radiation experiments in prison.

I remember growing up and being taught that Albizu Campos was a terrorist.

The only people Pedro Albizu Campos terrified were the profiteers who sought to make a charnel ground of his island and its people.
