FBI Assassinates Puerto Rican Nationalist Leader Filiberto Ojeda Ríos

EL GRITO DE LARES & FILIBERTO OJEDA RIOS

September 23 has a deep, double meaning for Puerto Ricans.

It is the anniversary of El Grito de Lares, when nearly 1,000 men – many of them slaves – revolted against the Spanish on Sept. 23, 1868.

It is also the anniversary of the death of Filiberto Ojeda Ríos, who was shot – and forced to bleed to death – by the FBI on Sept. 23, 2005.

Longtime Puerto Rican nationalist leader Filiberto Ojeda Rios was killed by the FBI.

The shooting occurred Friday after FBI agents surrounded a house where he was staying. According to an autopsy, Rios bleed to death after being hit with a single bullet.

Officials didn’t enter his home many hours after he was shot.

The FBI claimed the 72-year-old Ojeda Rios fired first but independence activists accused the FBI of assassinating him.

For the past four decades Ojeda Rios had been a leading figure in the fight for Puerto Rican independence and against U.S. colonial rule.

In 1967 he founded and led the Armed Revolutionary Independence Movement.

He was later a key organizer with the FALN, the Armed Forces of National Liberation and then the Boricua Popular Army, also known as the Los Macheteros.

A sharpshooter, located on high ground, maybe in a helicopter, shot him. It was a single bullet through his neck or an area near the face.

He fell, and then for 12 straight hours, the F.B.I. refused to enter or let anyone enter the house waiting for Filiberto Ojeda Rios to bleed to death, which was exactly what the coroner certified the morning after the shooting:

Filiberto Ojeda Rios died of a single wound.

There was active bleeding caused by the projectile.

The bleeding lasted hours.

Filiberto didn’t receive any medical or any other help.

So, once again, it is clear this was a political assassination.

Eight years after his death, he is remembered for his career as an insurgent. He founded the Boricua Popular Army also known as the “Macheteros” who fought for a decolonized, dignified and free Puerto Rico.
