On September 2nd, the Seattle City Council will vote on a resolution supported by members of the Seattle Urban and Reservation Native communities to end Columbus Day in Seattle and replace it with Indigenous Peoples Day. Come voice your support at the City Council meeting to this historic vote to abolish Columbus Day in Seattle and give rise to Indigenous Peoples Day. At Noon we will meet in front of Seattle City Hall for drumming, singing and guest speakers. The Seattle City Council meeting begins at 2 PM. Bring your drums. Columbus brought genocide and slavery to our lands, let us stand strong for our ancestors for what they endured and let us send a message to our youth and next generations that we will not tolerate celebrations in the honor of a man who committed mass atrocities. The resolution is co-sponsored by Council-members Kshama Sawant and Bruce Harrell.
