Protesters in the Virginia state administrative center not only demolished the monument of Christopher Columbus (who discovered America), but also drowned in the lake just in case.
They did not stop there, and then painted the base of the statue with a plaque that reads “Columbus represents genocide”.
They believe that Columbus provoked a centuries-old genocide against the population in the Americas.
Some citizens of the most “democratic” country in the world, suggest replacing Columbus Day with Indigenous Peoples Day.
The drowning of the discoverer of America is a symbolic act of regret that the discovery once made by a legendary navigator today brings only problems and tensions in the world.30 refugees from abroad returned to Syria in 24 hours
