Puerto Rico Launches Campaign for Independence | News | teleSUR

Latin American and Caribbean leaders gave their support to the Puerto Rican Independence Party at a recent summit in Costa Rica.

The Puerto Rican Independence Party (PIP) has launched an international campaign to promote the country’s independence from the United States, kicking off the process of decolonization.

Secretary-General of the PIP, Juan Dalmau, said the decision was taken after PIP President Ruben Berrios was given the floor to speak at a recent summit of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC) in Costa Rica. When given the floor, Berrios took the opportunity to push for a Puerto Rican independence movement, which the bloc largely supported.
