Protest Columbus Day at the San Juan Capistrano Mission!
Columbus did not discover "America," since Indigenous people were already here. What he did do was commit various crimes against us, such as: theft, genocide, ethnocide, rape, torture, slavery, and various other terrorist acts. There should not be a holiday commemorating him. Do not celebrate the origin of history's largest holocaust!
Junipero Serra is on his way to sainthood for establishing the California mission system, but what he actually created were concentration/death camps for California's Indigenous population. The same crimes that were committed by Columbus and his men were felt throughout the allegedly "holy" missions. Furthermore, to show that some things never change, the priests in the past enjoyed raping and molesting their subjects as much as they do today. The continued glorification of these missions is not justifiable.
