Call to action: Transform Columbus Day: Monday, October 8th, Pueblo, CO

4 Oct

Stop the Genocide. Stop the Racism.
Abolish Columbus Day.
Monday, October 8th
Pueblo, CO

“Columbus was a wétiko. He was mentally ill or insane, the carrier of a terribly contagious psychological disease, the wétiko psychosis. The Native people he described were sane people with a healthy state of mind. Sanity or healthy normality among humans and other living creatures involves a respect for other forms of life and other individuals. I believe that is the way people have lived (and should live). The wétiko psychosis, and the problems it creates, have inspired many resistance movements and efforts at reform or revolution. Unfortunately, most of these efforts have failed because they have never diagnosed the wétiko as an insane person whose disease is extremely contagious.” —Jack D. Forbes, Columbus and Other Cannibals
