Flagstaff, Ariz.- Evenementen zullen georganiseerd worden tegen de koloniale genocide en slavernij die door het hele land gevierd wordt als “Columbus Day”

Inheemse volkeren blijven zich verzetten tegen de eeuwen van koloniaal geweld in deze streek die bekend staat als de Southwest.

Van raciale profilering, politiegeweld, gedwongen verhuizingen, extreme extractie van grondstoffen, tot ontwijding van sacrale plaatsen zoals de San Francisco Peaks, zullen deze evenementen de aandacht richtten op herdenking, overleving en nalatenschap van weerstand.

 

De organisatoren doen hiermee ook een beroep op het stadsbestuur van Flagstaff om ernstig zaak te maken voor de erkenning van ‘Indigenous Peoples Day.
