  • Why is Puerto Rico not part of the United States of America?

    Puerto Rico is an unincorporated territory of the United States of America? She sits in an in-between limbo, neither a state or an independent nation. So how did Puerto Rico become owned by, but not part of America?

  • The Last Colony - A Brief History of Puerto Rico's Status

    In 1898, the United States invaded and colonized Puerto Rico as part of the Spanish American War. For 114 years the people of Puerto Rico have maintained a polarizing debate on the STATUS ISSUE that has been front and center of the political discourse on the Island. Puerto Ricans (American citizens since 1917) constantly dispute between the options of Statehood, Independence and Commonwealth. On November 6, 2012 the people of Puerto Rico held the fourth plebiscite in the Island’s history to try to redefine the political relationship with the United States. Weeks before the plebiscite vote, filmmaker Juan Agustín Márquez traveled back to his homeland and interviewed leading politicians, historians, sociologists, and economists to dissect the status debate in a multilayered conversation a...

    There are 3.5 million U.S. citizens currently facing one of the worst financial crises in this country - and they're all in Puerto Rico. The U.S. government has an almost 120-year-long relationship with Puerto Rico – which is a territory, not the 51st state. But what has that relationship looked like? Why is Puerto Rico still a territory, and what do Puerto Ricans, themselves, want for their future? Explore these questions – and some others – with Sana Saeed, who starts the story at the very beginning: May 12, 1898.

    Greetings citizens of the World. We are Anonymous. Government of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico: It has come to our attention, that despite the request for austerity measures in the government spending, you have decided to disregard the voice and well being of the people of territory of Puerto Rico and persist to run a political status in an attempt to only benefit yourselves and your buddies operating in the territory. The citizens of the territory of Puerto Rico requested a radical change in political status and attitude towards leadership and insisted that you serve the people rather than control them. The current political party in power vowed for a change in politics. That was the main reason you won the elections in 2012. Instead, you came to power ignoring those requests ...

The financial crisis prompted U.S. Congress to come up with a solution this week. But the same poll found almost a third of those surveyed aren't following Puerto Rico's financial trouble at all. Puerto Rico was a Spanish colony until 1898 when the United States gained control of the island in the Spanish-American War. Congress passed the Jones Act in 1917, granting citizenship and other rights to residents of the island and creating a representative government. Puerto Rico remains a territory of the United States, but it has only a nonvoting delegate in Congress, it doesn't vote for president in general elections, and its residents don't pay federal taxes.

Greetings citizens of the World. We are Anonymous. Government of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico: It has come to our attention, that despite the request for austerity measures in the government spending, you have decided to disregard the voice and well being of the people of territory of Puerto Rico and persist to run a political status in an attempt to only benefit yourselves and your buddies operating in the territory. The citizens of the territory of Puerto Rico requested a radical change in political status and attitude towards leadership and insisted that you serve the people rather than control them. The current political party in power vowed for a change in politics. That was the main reason you won the elections in 2012. Instead, you came to power ignoring those requests and collapsed the bonds market and pension funds. Imposed new taxes, increased the cost of electricity, water, sales taxes and pushed austerity measures upon the people. You manipulated an economic recession into a economic contraction. Creating the exodus of thousands of citizens out of the territory. You bankrupted the government finances and now you come telling the people that we are all in together. Meanwhile, you are giving the island away to the wealthy investors from out of town and avoiding austerity measures yourselves. Now, you claimed the government debt can not be paid, due to your own lack of financial responsibility for the past years. Before you make that decision, you should take a look at the outcome from not paying your debt. Go back in time and look what happened in Argentina in early 2000's. And take a look what is going on in Greece today. Total collapse in their financial banking systems, social chaos and hunger. It that what you want for your citizens? Clearly the system has failed us. Unemployment has skyrocket. Evidentially, people get more benefits from welfare that from working. Enough is enough. There are ways to pay the government debt and avoid this upcoming turmoil. Clearly those are not the government intentions. But the question is. Who is benefiting from this decision? You disregard the request of the people and continue to operate for your own benefits and gains. The revolution has begun. We claim to resolve our political status and full transparency in all financial transactions from now on. We request government cuts in all areas. It's size and all it's spending. We stand firm in our right for a government for the people by the people. Actions must speak louder that words. We must see austerity in all aspect of the governmental branches as soon as of today. In case you disregard our claims for change, you are only ignoring the voice of the people who voted for you in the first place. You are making an enemy out of us and we will stand united at your oppression. We are Anonymous. We do not forgive. We do not forget. We are legion. Expect us.
