Protest Columbus Day at the San Juan Capistrano Mission

Protest Columbus Day at San Juan Capistrano Mission on October 12 from 10AM-12:30 PM, followed by a presentation about Columbus' and the Missionaries crimes!

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.

When: October 12, 2002 10AM-12:30PM

Where: Mission San Juan Capistrano

The Mission is located 2 1/2 blocks west of Interstate 5 on Ortega Highway. From the Los Angeles area, take either Interstate 5 or Interstate 405 South to the second San Juan exit, which is Ortega Highway. Exit the freeway and turn right onto Ortega Highway. The Mission is straight ahead, approximately 2 1/2 blocks.

The protest will be followed by an educational presentation by the Cultural Center of Anahuac. They will discuss the implications of Columbus' arrival on October 12, 1492, and what happened at the California Missions. The presentation will take place at the Centro Cultural de Mexico at 1522 S. Main, in Santa Ana 92707, from 2:30 PM-5:30 PM.
