August 24th-let the Columbus Ship burn

ON August 24th 2002 a replica of the original ship that Columbus used to get lost and then massacre and plunder the inhabitants he found will be sailing into POrtland for an honoring of 500 years of fucking genocide. Organize, flyer, let people know what this desacration means to INdigenous peoples.
ON August 24th 2002 the Columbus ship will be in POrtland, I think at the same place the murderous Navy boats were stationed. PLease organize and let them know that Columbus is a murderous coward who only discovered "America" by getting lost half way around the world. He bragged heavily about chopping Indigeous peoples in hlf with one sword swing and other murderous and later slave reated deeds. This symbol of a replica of the original ship that Columbus used to get lost and then massacre and plunder the inhabitants he found will be sailing into POrtland for an honoring of 500 years of fucking genocide. Organize, flyer, let people know what this desacration means to INdigenous peoples.

do you have any more info on this? what time? where it's coming from? who's organizing it? where to find out more?

I think it would be great to organize some stuff--there are lots of fun things that could happen!
