Successful Week at United Nations' HQ in New York City

Dr. Julio Ortiz Luquis, BUDPR's International Relations Adviser, presented our organization's position on the colonial status of Puerto Rico before the UN's Special Committee on Decolonization on June 24, 2019. He joined more than 50 other petitioners in highlighting the continuing injustice of Washington's colonial treatment of Puerto Rico. Julio's speech capped a week in which two of our co-founders held meetings with various diplomatic missions in New York to garner support for our nation's self-determination and independence.
