Stop Celebrating Racism, Torture, Rape, Stop Celebrating Christopher Columbus

(Go to our website to read the entire article.)

Haiti was the first place in the Americas that Christopher Columbus began his slave trade.

Cacique King Caonabo of Haiti was the first native Haitian ruler to resist European barbarity, enslavement and atrocities in the Western Hemisphere. Haiti is also the first to stop slavery in the Americas.

Caonabo destroyed Christopher Columbus' Fort La Navidad. In that same spirit, 300 years later, the African warriors in Haiti would add to Cacique Caonabo's long trail of tears by bringing the world a higher morality, by forcibly beating, in combat, the colonialists and genocidaires...

..We are Anacaona's Ayiti and do not celebrate the genocidal rampages of the white settlers and colonists against King Caonabo, Queen Anacaona or her brother Cacique King Bohechio who ruled the Southern Haiti territory of Jaragua, their children and all the indigenous peoples of the Americas brutally executed, enslaved and destroyed by the Christopher Columbus invaders.

Before Hatuey's execution at the stake, the Europeans explained to Cacique Hatuey that if he agreed to be baptized before his death, he would be cleansed from all sins against God. Hatuey asked the priest to tell him where he would go if he didn't get baptized before they burned him alive. The European said, "hell". Hatuey asked, "where do the baptized Christians go?" The priest said "heaven." So the great Hatuey told the European terrorist:

'If the Spaniards will go to Heaven, then I certainly do not wish to go there! So, do not baptize me, I'd rather go to Hell!'-- Hatuey

We call on that Haiti spirit.
That spirit say NO to celebrating the mass murderer, rapist, terrorist and pedophile named, Christopher Columbus.

That Haiti spirit says NO to the current US occupation behind UN mercenary guns, poverty pimping NGOs and illegitimate elections. That Haiti spirit says NO to the US-Euro "soldiers," and "charity" workers that are the pedophiles, rapists, resource pillagers and quake-fund thieves importing the same pain to Haiti that Christopher Columbus metered out to Anacaona and Caonabo's family..."
