On Indigenous Peoples Day 2020, a monument to Junipero Serra, a notoriously violent mission system leader known for imprisoning and enslaving Indigenous people, was removed from a downtown streetside in front of Mission San Rafael.
While monuments to racism and violence are being removed by city and state officials, schools, parks and activists across the state, the city of San Rafael is refusing to recognize the harms perpetrated against Indigenous people and has decided to file felony charges against five of the fifty demonstrators. Of those charged, four Identify as Indigenous women and two of were baptized in the church Serra founded when they were young girls.
While the demonstration was focused on recognizing Indigenous land and history, not religion, extremists are now pushing for additional hate crime charges against the protestors and holding public exorcisms in the street.
This is a critical moment to resist increasing repression and support decolonial activists in your community.
Urge the District attorney Lori Frugolito to DROP THE CHARGES! Sign this petition, give her a call 8am-4pm 415-473-6450 and contribute to this legal defense fundraiser.
