Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:
We don’t like the statue of Columbus on the Capitol Grounds.
We tried to get it removed through official channels.
We announced we were going to tear it down ourselves.
We heard the Governor tell us not to, that the police would stop us.
We didn’t care.
We weren’t stopped.
We weren’t arrested.
We weren’t charged.
We weren’t even scolded.
We are heroes, taking back the lands our ancestors sold a century ago.
We’re coming for your house, next.
Some animals are more equal than others.
