Support From Italy on MN Celebration Protests

Support from Italy for Native Protest against Minnesota celebration

Hi, my name is Alessandro Profeti, I live in Italy, I
published, in my italian Blog www.nativiamericani.it,  an
article on your legitimate protest by inserting the Youtube
video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R9ait0L50yA “May 10,
2008 – ‘Wagon Train” at Fort Snelling”. We support your
actions, we believe that it is necessary to stop the silence
about your true history. We ask for a long time recognition
of the Genocide of Peoples Native Americans, please see my
video “Genocide is true”,
http://www.nativiamericani.it/?p=342 in italian and english
language. Please send news, updates, and also indications on
how we can help. Your people arrested by the police is free
now?
Respectfully
Alessandro Profeti, Italy
