Los Angeles decided to stop honoring Columbus

The Council of Los Angeles voted to stop mark on the city level, the Federal holiday Columbus Day. Instead, he will celebrate a Day dedicated to indigenous peoples. It is reported by the Los Angeles Daily News.

Change agents have come from Latin American countries, considering that the opening of the great Navigator America led to the extermination of its indigenous people, as well as to the flourishing of the slave trade, which killed millions of Africans.

Day of indigenous people plans to celebrate on the second Monday of October. Earlier, a similar decision was made in Berkeley, Seattle and Denver. According to the census, Los Angeles ranks second after new York in the number living in the territory of the Indians.
