    Senor Juan Mari-Bras, Secretary General of the Puerto Rico Pro Independence Movement, said at a press conference in the United Nations Building in New York on Friday (July 23), that his organisation had requested the Revolutionary Government of Cuba to press for Puerto Rican independence to be included in the agenda for the coming Session of the United Nations General Assembly.

    He was introduced at the press conference by Cuba's Permanent Representative at the UN, Ambassador Ricardo Alarcon Quesada.

    Senor Mari-Brass, speaking in Spanish, expressed his thanks to Cuba for helping his movement to their condemnation of what they termed the "oppressive colonial regime that the United States imposes on our country."
    He forecast a huge anti-American parade of Puerto Rican Independence movements when President Nixon visits the country in September.
