Resolution on Puerto Rico

Meeting of the SI Council in Santo Domingo, 28-29 January 2019

Original: Spanish

In the context of the continuing and growing colonial dominance of the United States upon Puerto Rico through the imposition of a Fiscal Supervisory Board with all-embracing powers over the government of the Island, the Socialist International reiterates its historic support to the inalienable right of the Puerto Rican nation to its self-determination and independence. The SI extends also its support to the unanimous call of the Special Committee on Decolonization of the United Nations for the United States to take the necessary measures to put an end to the current condition of political subordination of Puerto Rico.
