Indigenous Peoples Night of Resistance! 6pm-12midnight ( Doors open at 5pm) Oct. 14th Pauley Ball Room (Corner of Bancroft & Telegraph Ave) UC Berkeley What better way to celebrate Columbus day, than to attend a night of Indigenous resistance? As most of you may know, Oct. 12 is known officially as Columbus day and serves to recognize the historical reality of what that man did. What is often left out of the picture is the mass genocide the came because of that encounter which continues to today. A coalition of groups here in Berkeley have gotten together and planned not only a day to celebrate the unity of Native people here on campus but to bring solidarity to the many struggles that are happening through out the Hemisphere. On Oct. 14, various student organizations are putting together a concert that will have more than just great music, it will have a message of solidarity. In particular we will highlight issues facing the 1st Nations in Canada with land, the issues of sacred sites here in America, as well as the recent human rights movement by the Raza community. And finally the struggle of the Indigenous teachers and campesinos in Oaxaca and Atenco, Mexico. Along with our issues we are highlighting that day, we will have solidarity speakers from through out the world as well as speakers represented other colonized communities from the United States. Speakers will be represented from: Palestine to the Philippines. The day will be the last day in a week of events that the Native students at UC Berkeley are planning, to celebrate the local California Indian population and history.(Attached is the flyer) The event is free and for the people. Bring all your relations!
