Plymouth, Mass.-Nov. 22, 2012;Thanksgiving Day:
About 300 activists attended the 43rd annual Native American Day of Mourning in Plymouth, Mass.Since 1970,Native people have protested the genocide and injustice against them
perpetrated by the Pilgrims and the European colonizers.The true history of the Thanksgiving holiday was kept out of most US history books, instead describing a sugar-coated version.
Only Native speakers were allowed the microphone as this is their day to speak for themselves. The protest started by a telling of the true history of Thanksgiving from the Native point of view; then a Mayan from central America told the
truth about the upcoming Dec. 21, 2012 Mayan prophecy from the standpoint of the Mayan elders; then political prisoner Leonard Peltier wrote a statement from prison that was read
aloud.
This reporter has been attending the Day of Mourning for the past 25 years, and the voices for justice get even stronger every year.
Here is a video I took of some of the speakers including the entire Mayan statement and the entire Leonard Peltier message from
federal prison, and then the
march through Plymouth:
