aH! Indigenous resistance day…not Columbus Day

Just damn beautiful!

Across the Americas October 12 is widely celebrated as Columbus Day, the day in 1492 when Christopher Columbus, representing the Spanish Crown, first arrived in the Americas. In 2004 the Venezuelan government officially changed the name to Indigenous Resistance Day.

and there’s more…

during a special ceremony in Zulia state, Venezuelan Interior Relations and Justice Minister, Tarek el Aissami, handed over title deeds covering some 41,630 hectares of land to three Yukpa indigenous communities in the Sierra de Perija National Park.

Yupka community spokesperson Efrain Romero said, “It’s historic to receive title to the lands we inhabit,”

Receiving title to the lands we inhabit.  AH!  May all occupations of lands (military or economic) end
