SINKING COLUMBUS: Boston Marches for Indigenous Peoples Day
October 10, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Rally and march on Saturday, October 10 2020 to demand that the city of Boston honors Indigenous Peoples Day and commits to not returning the Columbus statue to Boston’s waterfront.
Masks up, Columbus down!
Mayor Walsh and Boston City Council need to stop erasing Indigenous people in the city and need to step up to address these and other Indigenous issues. We are sick and tired of being ignored!
