Goya Pulls Out of New York's Puerto Rican Day Parade
This year, the June 11 parade is honoring Oscar Lopez Rivera, a convicted terrorist whose group, the Armed Forces of National Liberation, or FALN, claimed responsibility for more than 100 bombings across New York, Chicago, Washington and Puerto Rico in the 1970s and early 1980s.
His sentence was commuted by President Barack Obama before he left office. Parade organizers told the AP that they do not condone violence.
[A good friend of mine was SEVERELY injured in one of their bombings. Paralyzed. Never recovered. Died early.]
Perhaps the U.S. ought to grant Rivera's wish and unilaterally declare Puerto Rico independent.
