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.

La Naval as a Religious Festivity in the Philippines (tags)
After discussing the history of the La Naval De Manila of 1646, we now discuss the La Naval as a religious festivity in the Philippines. According to historians, in 1593, on the death of his father, the Spanish Governor General of the Philipppines, Luis Perez Dasmarinas commissioned Captain Hernando de los Rios Coronel to have a Marian statue sculpted. He wished to give a religious imprint to his regime in the Philippines. Governor Dasmarinas whose name bore one of the plush high class subdivision among the richest in Makati and also was the builder of the famed walls of Intramuros asked a non-Catholic Chinese sculptor to make the statue.

GRAHAM VOTES FOR FOREHEAD (tags)
Senator Bob Graham indicated that he would rather be shot in the forehead than in the back, however I suggest an organized retreat due to the small number of troops extmated to be 150,000. This leaves us outnumbered by quite a few registered voters that support the right to bear arms.
Capture of Saddam (tags)
The war is between Capitalism and Islam. These are the *only* 2 ideologies today that are competing for domination. The administration and media are (plain and simple) afraid to reveal the identity of these 2 ideologies in conflict--especially Islam.

Baghdad Falls? (tags)
Baghdad falls to the invaders. U.S. Troops and tanks pour into the city center. Marines scale the statue of President Saddam Hussein in central Baghdad on Wednesday and prepare to topple it in front of a small crowd. A Marine covers the face of the statue with a U.S. flag. Suddenly realizing the highly provocative display of old glory would inflame the Arab world and likely frame the U.S. as a colonial master... the colonial masters quickly took down the U.S. flag before toppling the dicator's statue using a mechanized vehicle.

Bush in Paris (2) (tags)
It seems that everywhere Bush goes these days, he's confronted by people who mockingly use an image of a pretzel as a protest statement. A giant pretzel banner was carried in the streets of Paris, with the slogan "Watch out Bush!" Giant pretzels were also carried in the streets of Berlin, and many demonstrators could be seen with magic marker drawings of pretzels on their bodies or cloths. Photo by JJ Méric.
