Last October over a thousand people attended the International Tribunal of Indigenous Peoples and Oppressed Nations in the USA. The event, sponsored and organized by a coalition of 30 organizations, was part of the counter-Columbus quincentennial activities throughout the country. The Tribunal put the U.S. Government on trial for internationally recognized crimes such as genocide, colonialism, and the holding of political prisoners. The aims of the Tribunal were to destroy the myth of Columbus as the embodiment of the European Spirit of Adventure and rugged individualism; to provide a forum for a broader understanding of the right of self-determination for Native Americans, Puerto Ricans, New Afrikans (Blacks) and Mexicans; and the immediate, unconditional release of the Political Prisoners and Prisoners of War presently in the U.S. prisons and jails.
