Why We Don't Celebrate Thanksgiving
16 Nov 2007
Live interview with Kahentinetha Horn, a member of the Mohawk Nation, editor of Mohawk Nation News and long-time fighter for the rights of indigenous people this Sunday (11/18), 4pm U.S. Eastern time on
"Why We Don't Celebrate Thanksgiving" On Solidarity, Not Charity this Sunday, 16:00 - 17:00 (4:00 p.m.- 5:00 p.m.) U.S. Eastern Time.

Join a discussion exposing the roots of the U.S. holiday known as "Thanksgiving", which celebrates the white colonists' theft of indigenous land and genocide of indigenous peoples in North America

African People's Solidarity Committee Chairwoman Penny Hess will talk live with Kahentinetha Horn, about the North American Indian Holocaust. A member of the Mohawk Nation, Horn is editor of Mohawk Nation News.

A long-time fighter for the rights of indigenous peoples, Horn was involved in the blocking of the International Bridge at Akwesasne in 1968. In 1990, she was behind the Canadian Army razor wires that surrounded the Mohawk compound in Kanehsatake, known as the "Oka Crisis". She was fired by the Department of Indian Affairs for her involvement in the "Oka Crisis".

Call in and talk live with this heroic leader of indigenous resistance.

This program is Part 1 of a 2-part series. Part 2, on November 26, will feature a live interview with a representative of Union del Barrio, a revolutionary Mexican liberation organization based in Southern California. They will discuss topics including the indigenous roots of Mexican people, the theft of Mexican land by the U.S., and the current battle over the U.S./Mexico border.

This week will focus on the workshop presented by Luwezi Kinshasa on "The National Question", in which he explains the definition of a "nation" and today's work to consolidate the African nation by uniting Africans worldwide and tearing down the colonially imposed borders. Kinshasa is the General Secretary of the African Socialist International and the Director of International Affairs for the African People's Socialist Party.
