LET’S WORK TOGETHER TO REWRITE OCTOBER 12TH
The day which commemorates the “discovery of the Americas” by Christopher Columbus in 1492 is an insult to black and native peoples’ self-determination and should serve as a memorandum of the crimes, slavery and theft that our ancestors suffered.
Furthermore, the violence that our communities have faced for more than 500 years continues today under a neoliberal global economy and the systemic racism that sustains it.
We want the entire world to join our efforts to deconstruct the injustice and lies underpinning the supposed discovery extolled by Columbus Day. Now more than ever, October 12th must become a symbol of our expanding historic consciousness and a place where cultural and artistic encounters can take place in a context of shared understanding and respect.
