Title: Indian to sentence Columbus
Author: Reuters
Publication: The Indian Express
Date: October 13, 1998

Honduran Indians will sentence Christopher Columbus Americans
today, 506 years after his iscovery of the continent.

The Indians began a mock trial of Columbus in July on charges of
genocide and robbery resulting from 1492 beginnings of the
colonisation of the Americas. Sentencing will take place today,
which is Columbus Day. Many Indians throughout the Americas
consider the arrival of Columbus as the start of five centuries
of oppression. About 1,000 Indians blocked access of Mayan
ruins.
