Founded on September 17, 1922. Our main objective is to reinstate the Republic of Puerto Rico. The history of our Liberation Movement has become the fighting consciousness of every Puerto Rican
Nationalism is the organizing of patriots for the rescue of our sovereignty. It is the supreme dignity, and it's inspired by a gift of divinity; it requires love, courage, moral sacrifice, and discipline. All members are obliged to assimilate, disseminate and maintain these principles. Every nationalist since his entry into the movement begins to accumulate merits, knowledge, and experiences through the emancipatory struggle, filling their record of service to the Homeland and this being the sacred inheritance they must bequeath to their descendants. Therefore, each of us must live alert so as not to allow the slightest stain on our service sheet.
Puerto Rico finally received Autonomy through the Charter of Autonomy on November 25, 1897. Signed by the Spanish Prime Minister Práxedes Mateo Sagasta and ratified by the Spanish Courts.
Despite this Autonomy, only a few months later, the U.S. claimed the island as spoils of war in the Treaty of Paris. Under the leadership of Don Pedro Albizu Campos, the position of the Nationalist Party of Puerto Rico is that the Treaty of Paris could not authorize the Spaniards to "give" to the United States what was no longer theirs. This position throughout our history, as a matter of international law, is what unites the members of our Liberation Movement.
Partido Nacionalista de Puerto Rico, Movimiento Libertador, Junta Nueva York aware of its historical responsibility to the Homeland, advocates and works by all possible means of struggle, to constitute Puerto Rico in an independent, free, and sovereign Republic in accordance with the principles established by International Law.
