Columbus Day Protest, Downtown L.A. (tags)

Columbus Day has been suffering setbacks of late. Minneapolis; Berkeley, California; and most recently Seattle now observe Indigenous People's Day instead. San Francisco has Italian Heritage Day; Hawaii, Discoverers Day (i.e., the discovery of the islands by Polynesians); and South Dakota, Native American Day. Venezuela dropped Columbus Day in 2002 in favor of Day of Indigenous Resistance. Mexico, El Salvador, Argentina, and other countries celebrate Dia de la Raza*. While Columbus Day's still recognized here in Southern California, a new annual protest occurs in downtown L.A.

Idle No More Returns to CNN (tags)

March 20 was a Day of Ceremony and Resurgence for Idle No More. In Los Angeles, a vigil was held for two hours in front of CNN. This was Idle No More's second visit to CNN within a week because of continued failure by the mainstream media to cover this world-wide movement.

Protest and educational outreach continues in Canada, the U.S., and other countries concerning pending bills and projects that would be a major assault both on indigenous people and the environment. In Canada, Bill C-45 would unilaterally alter treaties with First Nations people, drastically effect lands and waterways on both sides of the U.S.-Canada border, and reduce jobs for all Canadians. In the U.S., the proposed XL pipeline would have devastating effects on aquifers and wetlands if there was ever a leak. The Indigenous movement, Idle No More, now several months old, has been ignored by the mainstream media.
