DC Standing Rock Solidarity holds protest of genocide after Colombus wreath laying

On Oct 10, 2016, or”Columbus Day” the embassies of Spain and Italy laid wreaths at the Union Station monument to that genocidal madman who washed up half-drowned on the shores of Turtle Island over 500 years ago. Two days after that ugly wreath-laying, DC Standing Rock Solidarity held a ceremony of their own at the same spot. The focus of the Oct 12 ceremoney was indigenous solidarity and resistance to ongoing acts of colonialist aggression, especially the Dakota Access Pipeline aka the Black Snake.

Christopher Columbus was both a murderer and a slave trader. His visits to Turtle Island brought nothing but sorrow, misery, and death yet there is a monument to him in front of Union Station and wreaths are laid there on what in the past was known as Columbus Day but is becoming known today as Indigenous Solidarity Day. It will take a lot of sage and a lot of drumming to drive away the stench left behind by those who celebrated genocide on Oct 10 in front of Union Station.
