Stand with the United American Indians of New England as they mark the 44th National Day of Mourning on the day many Americans celebrate Thanksgiving

This year once again Lakou NY calls on the community to join us as we travel to Plymouth, Massachusetts to stand with the United American Indians of the New England as they mark the 44th National Day of Mourning on the day many Americans celebrate Thanksgiving.

Many of us who celebrate Thanksgiving and eat turkey on this day do so without realizing that this holiday originates from a massacre of 700 Pequot men, women, elders, and children in Mystic, Connecticut.

The National Day of Mourning starts at noon with a Native American prayer ceremony. It is followed by a march around the town and a rally in front of Plymouth Rock where members of the UAINE tell the truth about the genocide perpetrated against their people and also their resistance which the day's mobilization represents. The day ends with a potluck dinner where everyone sits and eats together. This year, the day is once again dedicated to Native American political prisoner Leonard Peltier, unjustly imprisoned by the US Government since 1977.

The Lakou NY bus leaves  at 6am on Thursday Nov. 26th, 2009 from Radyo Pa Nou which is located at 1685 Nostrand Ave. (bet. Beverly Rd. and Cortelyou Rd.) in Brooklyn, NY.
Participation is $30.
(#2 or 5 train to Beverly Rd. in Brooklyn or B44 to Nostrand Ave. and Beverly Rd.)

Please call us at 347-730-3620 or email us at lakounyenfo@yahoo.com to reserve your seat.

The International Action Center is organizing a bus from Manhattan. You can reach them at 212-633-6646.

If you are not in the NY area and would like to come on your own, please visit the UAINE website for details and directions:

We end this email with the words of our brother Borgela Philistin, innocent Haitian man in this country's deathrow dungeons since 1995: Good intentions mean nothing. Only your concrete actions will change the evil reality we are living in.
