Thumbs up

Como ya lo habras notado es un poco misteriosa toda esta historia, como su nombre lo indica ,se llama asi por andar siempre(mientras vivia) entre las sombras de la prosion removiendo conciencias , fue un poco socialista e independentista, y nunca creyo en la ley de que el mas fuerte tiene siempre que dominar., si quieres saber mas, deberas darme causas mas fuertes.

Carlitos "La Sombra"

Check your e-mail. I sent you a reliable contact.

I am from Puerto Rico, but live and work in New York City.

I direct the "Juventud Nacionalista de Nueva York/Nationalist Youth of New York"

I assume your brother is interested or involved with "La Asociacion"

Contact the person I e-mailed you about.

I hope I've been of help...

El Nacionalismo es una escuela de honor y de valor
Nationalism is a school of honor and valor

The Juventud Nacionalista (Nationalist Youth) existed before the Puerto Rican Nationalist Party itself. It was organized in 1919 along with the first Asociación Nacionalista de Puerto Rico (Nationalist Association of Puerto Rico). It was at that time presided by José Paniagua. The Nationalist Youth was then composed of students from the University of Puerto Rico and High School students. In New York City, it is currently composed of Puerto Ricans between the ages of 18 and 30 years of age.

The Partido Nacionalista de Puerto Rico (Puerto Rican Nationalist Party) was organized on September 17 of 1922. Its Supreme Council was composed by seven lawyers, three doctors, three professors and two journalists. Its main objective was to carry out the struggle to make Puerto Rico a sovereign and independent republic. On May 30 of 1930, Don Pedro Albizu Campos, supported by the Nationalist Youth, was elected President. Under Albizu Campo’s leadership, the Party became eventually became the strongest opposition to the colonial regime of the U.S. in Puerto Rico.

Nationalism is the spirit devoted to the interests of the nation. A desire for the advancement, welfare and prosperity of the free and sovereign nation. It is the soul of the nation. Nationalism is Patriotism, and Patriotism is the Love for the nation. That Love is composed of will and effort, it is a duty. Nationalism requires the ultimate sacrifice, the maximum offering of Life.
