Other "foreign organizations" with which Puerto Rican terrorists may be connected include the PLO and the band around the infamous "Carlos the Jackal" - born Ilich Ramirez in Venezuela - with which Ojeda made contact during a stint for the JCR in Paris before moving to Havana.
Although contemporary Puerto Rican terrorism was born during the relatively prosperous mid-1960s, the past year has seen a record rise in violent acts which may be attributed in part to widening discontent over a sharp decline in the island's economy.
Although the pro-independence forces - the non-leftist Puerto Rican Independence Party and the Communist PSP - polled less than 6 per cent of the vote in the 1980 gubernatorial election, independence retains a mystique for Puerto Ricans and is potentially an explosive issue.

On the contrary, the Puerto Rican worker finds the present political status of the island advantageous to him because this status is part of the basis for the tax and other conditions which have made the island attractive to Yanqui employers running from the political (statehood) conditions of the mainland.
The reactionary side of Puerto Rican nationalism shows most clearly as impotence whenever the PSP leadership is confronted with a situation which demands connecting the Puerto Rican workers' struggles to the mobilization of class struggle forces in alliance with mainland workers generally.
Thus, the only nominally socialist party on the island decided to throw politics out of the window at precisely the point where a government-employer front was developing to generate a political approach to crush the strike wave.
