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

It had to come from Cuba!! End the colony … #StandWithPuertoRico ….


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.

I'm originally from Puerto Rico. I was born in Santurce and raised in Rio Piedras. Have lived in Florida since 1999. I have a doctorate degree in Medicine; completed in 1976. My Internal Medicine specialty was completed in 1979. Worked for Puerto Rico's health system until 1985. At this time, I'm happily retired after working for the federal government for almost 28yrs. I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone "out there" who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is "eclectic" - a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I'm interested in news reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse - the "wrongly" affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I'm open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one .... since we ALL are ONE!! The future looks bright and promising!!!
