A Message from the UCTP as Columbus Day nears...

Taino'ti Guaitiao (Greetings Relatives):

On behalf of the United Confederation of Taino People (UCTP), it is my
hope that at the time you receive this message you are in good health
and spirit.

I am writing to remind you that as we draw closer to Columbus Day,
there will be various activities happening throughout the country to
protest this so-called holiday and we hope that you will consider
supporting any such events in your area.

Please also consider other ways that you can help to educate a wider
audience about Columbus the Exploiter. Some suggestions include
sending information to your children's schools; boycotting stores
that promote Columbus Day and patronizing those that don't; or
writing a letter to your local newspaper about this issue.

There are many ways, individually or collectively, we can help to
raise awareness. If you should require any resources, hand-outs or
talking points, please visit our award winning UCTP Web Portal at
http://www.uctp.org/archives.html#7a

As always, we thank you in advance for your support and please
inform us if you are participating in or organizing any other
anti-Columbus Day activities as we would like to publish this
information in our hard copy News Journal "La Voz del Pueblo Taino"
and here on the Taino News List.

Peace and Blessings,
Roberto Mucaro Borrero,
President and Chairman,
UCTP – U.S. Regional Coordinating Office
