We're here! We're Italian! We're marching in Denver, Colorado, tomorrow to remember Christopher Columbus.

"No one will stop us, no matter what," organizer George Vendegnia told The Denver Rocky Mountain News.

An opposition event has been organized by the Transform Columbus Day Alliance. The group is holding the Four Directions/All Nations March.
