The other side of Thanksgiving…42nd National Day of Mourning…Free Leonard Peltier

For many people, Thanksgiving is a time to be with family and friends and eat a lot of food while for others it is a painful reminder of what Thanks-taking truly is. Tomorrow is the 42nd annual National Day of Mourning. Below is information taken from www.uaine.org to give people further information on tomorrow’s event.

WHAT IS NATIONAL DAY OF MOURNING?  

An annual tradition since 1970, Day of Mourning is a solemn, spiritual and highly political day. Many of us fast from sundown the day before through the afternoon of that day (and have a social after Day of Mourning so that participants in DOM can break their fasts). We are mourning our ancestors and the genocide of our peoples and the theft of our lands. NDOM is a day when we mourn, but we also feel our strength in political action. Over the years, participants in Day of Mourning have buried Plymouth Rock a number of times, boarded the Mayflower replica, and placed ku klux klan sheets on the statue of William Bradford, etc.
