WA Italian-American Group Objects To Creating Indigenous People's Day

(Seattle, WA)  --  An Italian-American group is objecting to the City of Seattle creating Indigenous People's Day to replace the local observance of Columbus Day.  Organizers with the activist group say a full-page newspaper ad will be taken out to protest disrespect and "excessive political correctness" on the part of city officials.  Supporters of the change say Christopher Columbus left a legacy of slavery and genocide at the expense of Native Americans.  Mayor Ed Murray is scheduled Monday to sign the resolution, which was approved earlier this week by the Seattle City Council.
