Art Against the Brutal Tide

Local activist brings a million bones to Washington

Nearly two years ago, Alibi writer Summer Olsson told you about the One Million Bones art exhibition, an ambitious large-scale project designed to honor victims and survivors of genocide in Sudan, South Sudan, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Burma and Somalia. Both a disturbing reminder of the human cost of mass atrocities and a fundraiser to anti-genocide organizations, the project is finally coming to a head this weekend in Washington D.C., where one million bones will be laid out in the National Mall.

On August 27, 2011, a preview installation of 50,000 bones was placed at the intersection of Fourth and Central by Albuquerque volunteers. Now, after three years of planning, education and hard work, the complete exhibit will unfold June 8 through 10 in our nation's capital. Each one of the million artwork bones, handmade by students, artists and activists from around the world, "represents a call to action, a story, a voice."

The project, which was born in Albuquerque, is headed by Naomi Natale. Speakers and performers, including Albuquerque's Poet Laureate Hakim Bellamy, will be present, and a candlelight vigil will take place Sunday evening.

The protest began at the U.S. Bank across from the mini APD substation in Nob Hill, but after police cars blocked the road, marchers decided to move so they would be more visible. Officers followed the demonstrators as they walked east from Dartmouth and blocked off every intersection they came to.

Is Luis Posada Carriles a terrorist?

Protesters outside an El Paso trial today say Luis Posada Carriles should face more serious charges than perjury and immigration fraud.

Albuquerque’s Answer Coalition traveled to Downtown El Paso to demonstrate this morning. Andy Beale, a member of the antiwar activist group, says turnout was great with around 40 or 50 people. They were successful in conveying their message, he adds: “Luis Posada is a terrorist, and he needs to be prosecuted for that.”

Posada, 82, is a former CIA agent who, for some, is a champion who stood against Fidel Castro. But Venezuelan Foreign Minister Nicolás Maduro calls him the bin Laden of the Americas. Noam Chomsky calls him a “world champion in international terrorism.” He’s said to have been involved in several bombings in Cuba in the late ’90s and a 1976 airplane bombing in which 73 passengers died, among other things.

His trial in El Paso today is about immigration fraud relating to his entrance into the United States via Mexico. He lives in Miami.

Despite the heated communism/terrorism debate, Answer Coalition’s Beale says today’s protest was entirely peaceful. A right-wing group of about 30 that supports Posada also demonstrated, he says, but there was no confrontation.
