I heavily admire and applaud the infamous Lolita Lebrón, a Puerto Rican nacionalista that performed a coup d’etat on American House of Representatives in the name of freeing her country from the regime of an exploitative domination that pushed her home country into poverty. Upon arrest, she is quoted as saying, “Yo no vine a matar a nadie, yo vine a morir por Puerto Rico!” or “I didn’t come here to kill anyone, I came here to die for Puerto Rico!” Lebrón is only ever mentioned as a footnote in history books, but I think her bravery and dedication are worth mentioning much more.
