The United Nations’ (UN) Decolonization Committee is in its third decade of trying to eradicate colonialism in the world. In that effort, it holds a hearing every year around June (the month New York City holds its Puerto Rican Day Parade) to discuss Puerto Rico’s colonial situation.
It would be very helpful if in next year’s discussion there could be a full house in the hearing room with people interested in the decolonization of Puerto Rico. This hearing is not well publicized since some people would like to maintain the status quo forever.
Please help spread the word to everyone so that those interested in attending the June 2012 hearing could do so? The exact date has not yet been determined by the UN.
Thank you for your time in this matter!
