received on 4/14
on 4/11 part II of the AbolishColumbus music compilation was released. This comes on the heals of the week against repression but is a continuation of that struggle.
Locals of the so-called capital of Ohio [note – ‘the heart of it all’] are resisting the normalization of oppression by contributing to this compilation via www.thuh.podomatic.com
The plague of ignorance is a mental disease; that which heralds a child sex-trafficer, slave-master, venture-capitalist / imperialist as a namesake must be rebuked.
As far back as the 1990’s locals of central Ohio have worked to un-name this city. Now, musicians are joining in solidarity with AbolishColumbus to not only undo Christopher Columbus day but also the once namesake this place.
We are summoning 4/11 as ‘Columbus is Dead’ day. We are using ColumbisDEAD to remind touring ‘DIY’ bands and the international community that Columbus actually died on May 20th, 1506.
Volume 3 of our compilation will be released on 5/11 and we will be hosting a 6/11 potluck and listening party the following month.
