Posts Tagged ‘Constitucion’


I haven’t post in the last few days, I had many stuff to talk about like the world cup games which been very amazing but I didn’t, I don’t think no one is reading this any ways so I am just wasting my time, probably. Today I felt the need to post, the need to express myself about the recent events that took place here, in Puerto Rico.

First of all let me give you a little history lesson in case you don’t know much about Puerto Rico and it’s current status. On July 25, 1898, during the Spanish-American War, Puerto Rico was invaded by the United States. As an outcome of the war, Spain ceded Puerto Rico, along with Cuba, the Philippines, and Guam to the U.S. under the Treaty of Paris. Therefore Puerto Ricans are American citizens, the first and most important constitution is the United States one but Puerto Rico have it’s own. Things been happening since this current administration (government) took place two years ago, lot of people getting fired from there jobs, rising in taxes among many other things, so the ambience around if one of discomfort towards the government. The current administration party is the PNP (Partido Nuevo Progresista) they advocate for been United States 51 state (LOL). There have been protest in Puerto Rico in the last few months, at the university because the cost of studying was rising. I didn’t agree because I think that this are difficult times and everyone have to adjust to global cost which are increasing and the public university is cheap already but this time is not about that, is about the constitution.

The problem started a week or so ago when the president of the senate Thomas Rivera Schatz give an order to not allow neither press nor citizens into the capitol to see the legislation they made. This is a constitutional right, you can enter and see the legislators making laws in the balcony on the second floor and even worse not allowing the press either. What are they hiding? This right is protected under United States constitution and Puerto Rico, also this is a public building, property of the people of Puerto Rico. So today a few people tried to enter the capitol to watch the laws and legislation been pass since is the most important day, the shock force was waiting inside the capitol hidden for some reason, everything was planned out since the beginning, when the persons asked authorization to enter it was denied and the press that tried to access the capitol also was denied, the rest as they say is history. The police came out of there hiding and started beating women’s mostly and old people, even reporters. The group of protesters were minimum, an hour or two later people started to come when they found out about what was going on, so they prepare to make a peaceful protest. Suddenly more police came with the most advance riot gear I have seen (and they say they don’t have money lol) and started beating everyone, not allowing anyone to protest which is such and important constitutional right in a democracy. The police was sadistic, you could see in there face there wrath and anger to do some damage.The police followed protesters all over the capital according to news channels, running after them. The capital is a tourist spot and news say even tourist got beat up by the police.

I hope this doesn’t stop here, and today when the sun rise there are even more protest. We need to stop this politicians to doing whatever the fuck they want, and worse violating important constitutional rights protected in both PR and US constitution, the one they love and want to be part of. The Puerto Rican governor hasn’t even appear to talk on the matter on TV, he’s been disappear the last two weeks. This motherfucker Thomas Rivera Schatz, the president of the senate is behind the power, the governor is his bitch. Schatz even look like fucking Hitler, same moustache and all. Thanks to all the men’s and women’s that so protected, and will keep on doing so, the constitution of this blessed island Puerto Rico. I will leave all of you with this quote:

Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. – U.S Declaration of Independence
