At this same time in Washington DC Pope Frances will be proceeding with the Canonization of Junipero (Genocide) Serra as a Saint. We are gathering as one voice to let the Vatican, The Pope, The Catholic Church and The World know we do not recognize Junipero Serra as a Saint.

Show up and say no to Colonization and the continued Genocide of Indigenous people globally

On September 23rd at 4:15 EST the Pope and the Catholic church will make a grave and horrendous mistake. They intend to make Junipero Serra a saint. This monster created genocide of Indigenous people beginning in Mexico and came up to what is now California and spread disease and slavery and destruction everywhere he traveled. He was the "evangelizer" of the "new world" and would stop at nothing, even knowing that where ever he went, death followed. It was a time of little choice for our ancestors as they were quickly enslaved, never being able to live as they once did, leaving behind their way of life, religion, language and everything they once knew in less than the 100 years that the missions existed.

We stand as survivors of this genocide and say no to Sainthood for a man that was of his time. He did not stand for the Indians, he stood for his own ego, the crown of Spain and a church that recognized us as less than human.
