Mensaje a todos esos que en Puerto Rico se rasgaron las vestiduras escandalizados, según ellos, por las piedras lanzadas --sabrá Dios por quién—durante la marcha del 1ro. de mayo en San Juan, y que son los mismos que trataron de restar importancia a las 200,000 personas que protestaron pacíficamente las extremas medidas de austeridad y la junta imperial de control fiscal que decide su futuro: ustedes, o vergonzosamente desconocen la realidad de su nación o han sido cómplices en su creación.

Message to all those self-righteous individuals in Puerto Rico who made a show of being scandalized by the stones thrown –God knows by whom—during the May 1st march in San Juan, while minimizing the 200,000 people who peacefully protested the extreme austerity measures and the imperial federal control board deciding their future: You must either ignore your nation’s reality or be complicit in its creation. In either case, shame on you.
