Sign the Petition to

Mr. Barrack Obama, President of the United states

I support the petition that you consider including the results and the resolution of the status of Puerto Rico in your up-coming State of the Union Address before the 113th Congress. You wrote in your Democratic Agenda for your second term the following: "It is time for Puerto Rico to take the next step in the history of its status and its relationship to the rest of the United States." We did, Mr. President by voting with 54% to end the segregationist & colonial status and 61.9& for statehood. It is time Mr. President to resolve the colonial condition of the 3.6 millions American citizens living in the territory. You said that "We commit to moving the resolution of the status issie forward with the goal of resolving it expeditiously." The State of the Union Address would be a great launching pad for making political equality a reality. Ask Congress to present an Admission Act. 37 states of the Union were admitted without a Federally sponsored plebiscite. It is time for bold leadership on this issue.

Thank you and God Bless the United States of America!

We have talk too much. Now is the moment to look for innovative ways in order to get the attention of the US Congress. It is time to comply with United Nation's address to the congress demanding to end Puerto Rico's colonial status.

The United States is aggressive caring for human and civil rights for nations around the world but, shamefully, is avoiding actions to end our political situation.
