Stop Destruction of Sacred Burial Mounds


My Aunty whose ancestors and parents have canadian and american-indian blood sent me an invite to a very particular group. I was astonished to see that in Canada at this hour, their is still no justice done to dead people and to their memories.

A 1,500 year old Native American stone mound was about to be bulldozed near Oxford, Alabama, and the earth used for a landfill to build a Sam's Club, a BIG BOX discount store owned by Walmart.
Protesters there have managed to stop the shovels temporarily but 320 acres of Sacred burial grounds, temples and sanctuaries are at risk.
An Oxford City council member reportedly said, "it ain't no sacred site, it was just used to blow smoke signals"!! Me thinks me smells the whiff of Colonialism in the forms of ignorance, Consumerism and Globalization...
Join The Fight such that your grave won't be destroyed for Walmart or McDonald one day..
