On May 2 there will be a demonstration at Mission Dolores as part of an 'International Day of Mourning' held in response to the celebration of Junipero Serra in Rome and at the American seminary in LA on the same day.

The Vatican has announced Junipero Serra is expected to be canonized and made a Saint by Pope Francis in September when he visits the US. Native American activists have planned a series of protests at the California Missions, where Serra oversaw the genocide of thousands of Indigenous Californians.

The May 2 demonstration will be held at Mission Dolores, 3321 16th St, San Francisco, from 4:30pm-6:30pm.
