Activists will stage a downtown march supporting human rights and indigenous dignity on Monday, October 12, which the City of San Antonio designated Indigenous People's Day.

Marchers will gather at Columbus Park, where the city this summer took down a statue of explorer Christopher Columbus. Activists called for statue's removal  due to Columbus' history of slavery and oppression of indigenous people.



The march will run 2-5 p.m. More information is available by emailing indigenousway@gmail.com or calling (210) 542-9271.
