AIM protests lack of action to repeal Columbus Day
Wednesday, May 9, 2007
Filed Under: National

The American Indian Movement of Colorado held a protest at the state Capitol on Tuesday to protest Democratic leaders for failing to act on legislation to repeal Columbus Day.

Glenn Morris said AIM was working with Sen. Suzanne Williams, a Democrat of Cherokee ancestry, to end the day. But he said Democratic leaders and Gov. Bill Ritter (D) scuttled the bill.

"When is the time right to reverse racism?" he asked, The Denver Post reported.

AIM has led yearly protests against the Columbus Day parade in Denver.
