SUPPORT 239 PEOPLE ON TRIAL FOR CONFRONTING COLUMBUS CELEBRATION
Write or call  the Mayor of Denver.  Urge Him to Stop the Prosecution. 

This week ,as people around the world honor the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the City of Denver continues the prosecution of  239 members of the Transform Columbus Day Alliance who were arrested last October 9  for confronting a columbus parade  -- a celebrationthat commemorates and perpetuates the genocide of American Indians.  These brave individuals should not be regarded as criminal defendants, but as defenders of human rights, who have not only a right but a legal responsibility, under U.S. and be international law, to confront a celebrationof genocide.

Tuesday morning, January 18, at 8:30 a.m. in Courtroom 13 the City and County Building, the next phase of the citys prosecution began.  This trial is expected to last 3-4 days

We ask you to contact the Mayor of Denver, the City Attorney, and the Denver City Council and urge these officials to support ending the Columbus Day holiday in Denver and in Colorado, and help transform that day to a true holiday that promotes respect for all of Denvers diverse cultures.
