“The fiscal control board is an attack on democratic processes and back the rights advanced by the people of Puerto Rico, undermining to three million American citizens to safeguard the interests of the stakeholders.”
The unfortunate decision of the candidate for Governor, Pedro Pierluisi highlights the struggle and what has been achieved in terms of the majority decision of the people who want statehood for this island.
The Resident Commissioner in Washington, Pedro Pierluisi is a serious mistake to embrace with the forerunner of the chaos and hardships of the country Garcia Padilla, in terms of postponing the issue of status when it is an essential part of the problem.
There no historical moment, than this moment in history, for the colonial issue is resolved once and since for all, and prefers to make common cause which reverse the discussion of the statehood issue, issue that have been discuss for so many years.
The Board not only usurps the power of the elections, but it is an act of disrespect to the decolonization and final solution of the status. The economic crisis cannot disassociate itself from the consequential reality that has a century of colonialism.
