Genocide Day in the Americas
Today is officially Columbus Day in the US and Thanksgiving Day in Canada.
Columbus Day "is a holiday celebrating the anniversary of the October 12, 1492 arrival of Christopher Columbus to the Americas" according to Wikepedia.
This day marks the MASS GENOCIDE of Native peoples on this side of the world. There is nothing to celebrate!
Folks took to the streets to protest against a Columbus Day parade in Denver on Saturday.
AP reports that "Police arrested 83 Columbus Day Parade protesters including American Indian Movement activist Russell Means after fake blood and dismembered baby dolls were poured on the parade route ..."
