This flag represents me.

The three red stripes represent the blood from the brave warriors.

The two white stripes represent the victory and peace that they would have after gaining independence.

The white star represented the island of Puerto Rico.

The blue represents the sky and blue coastal waters.

Something to think about …. “What Nationalism really is …. Did you know? …. “!!


hostilepol

~~September 19, 2016~~ 

NATIONALISM 

Nationalism is a shared group feeling in the significance of a geographical and sometimes demographic region seeking independence for its culture or ethnicity that holds that group together.

This can be expressed as a belief or political ideology that involves an individual identifying with or becoming attached to one’s nation.

Nationalism involves national identity, by contrast with the related concept of patriotism, which involves the social conditioning and personal behaviors that support a state’s decisions and actions.

A Puerto Rican Moment …. “It Happens …. “Don Pedro Albizu Campos …. el Maestro …. “!!

~~September 7, 2016~~

DON PEDRO ALBIZU CAMPOS

Pedro Albizu Campos (September 12, 1891[4] – April 21, 1965) was a Puerto Rican attorney and politician, and the leading figure in the Puerto Rican independence movement. Gifted in languages, he spoke six; graduating from Harvard Law School with the highest grade point average in his law class, an achievement that earned him the right to give the valedictorian speech at his graduation ceremony.

However, animus towards his mixed racial heritage would lead to his professors delaying two of his final exams in order to keep Albizu Campos from graduating on time. During his time at Harvard University he became involved in the Irish struggle for independence.

Albizu Campos was the president and spokesperson of the Puerto Rican Nationalist Party from 1930 until his death in 1965. Because of his oratorical skill, he was hailed as El Maestro (The Teacher). He was imprisoned twenty-six years for attempting to overthrow the United States government in Puerto Rico.

“It’s very difficult to do art in prison, because the limitations are enormous.”

The understated words of Puerto Rican political prisoner Oscar López Rivera reflect both the realities of the U.S. prison-industrial complex and the challenges of a political prisoner making art a weapon of resistance.

To understand how Oscar developed as a renowned artist in such a poisonous environment, we examine his history.

Who is Oscar Lopez Rivera?

Oscar López Rivera is a Puerto Rican political prisoner who has served more than 34 years in U.S. prisons, among the longest-held political prisoners on the planet. Convicted in 1981 of “seditious conspiracy” – that is, conspiring to use force against the authority of the United States over Puerto Rico – for his commitment to the independence of Puerto Rico, Oscar was not accused or convicted of causing harm or taking a life.

He is nevertheless serving a sentence of 70 years in the U.S. “gulag.” He is among the longest held political prisoners in world history, and is considered by many to be the Mandela of the 21st century.

Oscar López Rivera: Artist

In spite of 34 years of adversity in prison, Oscar has maintained his integrity, spirit, and political principles. He keeps fit, reads voraciously, stays up to date with current affairs, and writes.

The narrative of his life and years in prison, Between Torture and Resistance, created from letters to family, friends, and comrades, was published in 2013.

Celebrating July 4th …. “Happy Independence Day Puerto Rico? …. NOT”!!


LAB@

~~July 5, 2016~~ 

MAN IS ESSENTIALLY FREE

I remember, as I was grwoing up, I went to a private Catholic school administered/run by Americna nuns and priests.

It was ranked as one of the best schools in Puerto Rico.

I thank them for all the education I received from kindegarten to the day I graduated in 1968.

One of the main things that we learned was about the importance of the 4th of July, the day where the United States celebrated their indepence from England.

They called it “America’s birthday”.

I do find it unacceptable that I didn’t really learn about the “real history” of Puerto Rico, my place of birth.

I’m learning that on my own at this stage of my life.

The picture that has emerged, as I study, is the sad and current reality of the Island.

I know better now.

Please, take a look and learn.

Thank you!

~~Story about the Puerto Rican flag on Lady Liberty~

While many may think this image has been altered, it was not. This is an actual photo taken on October 25, 1977 when a group of unarmed Puerto Rican activists gathered to protest demanding the release of Puerto Rican Nationalist prisoners.

This was an act of symbolism illustrating their hopes of freedom and independence in putting an end to the discrimination that Puerto Ricans were enduring.

On November 5, 2000, Puerto Rican activist, Alberto de Jesús Mercado, better known as Tito Kayak, along with five other protesters went to the top of the Statue of Liberty in New York City where he bravely placed the Puerto Rican flag on the statue’s crown.
