Indigenous Peoples Day

Boston Indymedia has a couple of photos and descriptions of Columbus Day protests that took place in the area. The Brookline High students in Coolidge Corner are particularly inspiring.

Sadly, there don't seem to have been many Indigenous Peoples Day events in the Northeast. Look how many took place in Oregon.

Your first link shows the Christopher Columbus statue on the waterfront defaced with red paint. I don't think this is a cool thing to do, and it pisses off the nearby Italian community every time it happens.

I'm not much for vandalism either, but was just pointing out that freakin people here do so little to protest the holiday.

Well, little public stuff anyway. I know a lot of people, like myself, wrote letters and things. But still. Pretty sad that I could find so little stuff that had taken place here and so much elsewhere.
