“Nada que Celebrar” action in Columbus Plaza in the Colonial Zone of Santo Domingo.
October 12th, 2017
Two red pieces of fabric beneath Columbus statue that read: “Nothing to Celebrate” “October 12, 1492 Starts the Genocide”. I handed flyers that read: “[...]Colonization was and is a violent process that destroys cultures, civilizations and continue violating our bodies and peoples.[...]”.
After being taken down of the statue, I walked the streets speaking to school children and grown ups about the history of colonization in the Dominican Republic.
