    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...

In 1904, President Theodore Roosevelt declared that the United States had to intervene in the internal affairs of Latin American. In his own words: "if any South American country misbehaves it should be spanked."All US presidents that succeeded him have, in lesser or greater measure, continued to exercise their perceived right over a region often known as “America’s Backyard”. After more than 400 years of Spanish colonial domination, in 1897 Puerto Rico was given the right to govern over its affairs. only five months later, Spain and the US went to war over the last Spanish colonies in the region. American Forces occupied Puerto Rico. The Treaty of Paris clearly established that all Puerto Rican affairs were to be decided by the United States Congress. President Theodore Roosevelt recommended that Puerto Ricans become U.S. citizens. Despite the overwhelming opposition from the Puerto Rican legislators, in March 1917 the US Congress decided that all Puerto Ricans were now US citizens; but only to be ruled and not be given the rights. Many Puerto Ricans were forced to fight in the America’s wars and many died. Up to this day not much has changed, as that Treaty of Paris is still valid. PRESSTV Documentaries

https://democracynow.org - In the Caribbean, Hurricane Maria struck the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico this morning as a major Category 4 storm—the most powerful hurricane to make landfall there since 1928. The landfall on Puerto Rico came after Maria lashed the U.S. Virgin Islands and devastated the island of Dominica, causing what the country’s prime minister called "mind-boggling" devastation.

After it was spared the worst of Hurricane Irma, the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico is now the target of the eye of Maria, another category 5 Atlantic storm. Maria is picking up strength as it barrels toward the island. Officials say if the hurricane stays on projected path, strong winds and heavy rainfalls could devastate Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. VOA's Zlatica Hoke reports.

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 about the pros and cons of each option on the ballot. His mission: To explain the status debate to the people of the United States, Congress and the President, and bring the American people up to date on this century old question: Will there be a change in status in America’s Last Colony?

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.

The hurricane-battered islands of the Caribbean are facing yet another storm threat: Forecasters said Sunday that Tropical Storm Maria is likely to hit the Leeward Islands as a strengthening hurricane on Tuesday. Hurricane watches were in effect for many of the very islands still trying to cope with the devastation left by Hurricane Irma, including St. Martin, St. Barts and Antigua and Barbuda. The U.S. National Hurricane Center said Maria was likely to grow into a hurricane on Sunday and swell into major hurricane status by midweek as it heads for Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and Haiti. The storm had maximum sustained winds of 65 mph (100 kph) late Sunday morning. It was centered about 450 miles (720 kilometers) east-southwest of the Lesser Antilles and was heading west-northwest at 15 mph (24 kph). Meanwhile, long-lived Hurricane Jose was moving northward off the U.S. Atlantic Seaboard, kicking up dangerous surf and rip currents. But it wasn't expected to make landfall. It was centered about 355 miles (575 kilometers) south-southeast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, and was moving north at 9 mph (15 kph). It had maximum sustained winds of 90 mph (150 kph). In the Pacific, Tropical Storm Norma's threat to Mexico's Los Cabos area appeared to be easing. Forecasters said the storm was weakening and its center was likely to remain offshore. The storm had winds of about 45 mph (75 kph) and it was centered about 145 miles (230 kilometers) south-southwest of Cabo San Lucas. That area was hit two weeks ago by Tropical Storm Lidia, which flooded streets and homes and killed at least four people. The Baja California Sur state government readied storm shelters and canceled classes for Monday as well as calling off a Mexican Independence Day military parade in the state capital, La Paz. Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Lee slipped back to tropical depression force in the Atlantic and Tropical Storm Otis was gaining force fall out in the Pacific. Neither threatened land.
