Decolonize Is Solidarity: Oakland protests the war in Afghanistan
Sunday October 7th marked the 11th year of the US-led NATO occupation of Afghanistan and it also coincided with Indigenous People's Day (anti Columbus Day). About 200 people gathered at Oakland's Oscar Grant Plaza to protest colonization in all it's forms, from the 500 years of genocide of Indigenous peoples to the the US war in Afghanistan. The action was called for by communities of color who directly affected by US colonialism and imperialism.
