Anti-Columbus Day Resources

Columbus is responsible for the murder of millions of indigenous people.

Columbus was a slavetrader in Africa before invading America. He began the slave trade in the Americas. He deserves no holiday, no parades, no statues.

Columbus Day celebrates the doctrine of discovery – the legal process that stole Indian people’s territories, and that continues today.

Columbus brought a philosophy of domination to the Americas that persists today – domination of other peoples, domination of the environment, domination of other belief systems, domination of women by men.

Put Simply, the Columbus legacy is one steeped in blood, violence, and death.

The day celebrating him was created in 1907. 103 years later its time to remove this day celebrating violence, bloodshed and the dispossession and extermination of indigenous peoples from our calender. We must actively rejects the celebration of Columbus and his legacy. We must also reject historical misconceptions regarding Columbus and his “discovery” of the Americas.

As my small contribution to the fight against colonialism and one of the key holidays that celebrates it, here are some links to a selection of resources for anti-Columbus and anti-Columbus Day activists and warriors:

  1. I would like to see the abolition of Columbus Day. I hate Christopher Columbus because he is a genocidal murderer. He is the son of the Devil !. The guy is an evil, coldblooded, calculating, sadistic, cruel, bloodthirsty tyrant. He should not be forgiven for his wickedness and I want Columbus Day ended more than ever !.
