Join us for four lectures about the Fall of the Aztec Capitol, Tenochtitlan, this Saturday August 14, 2010 from 2 PM to 3:30 pm in Spanish, and from 3:30 pm to 6 PM in English, at El Centro Cultural De Mexico, located at 310 W 5th Street, in Santa Ana.
When the Spanish conquistadors got their first look at the Aztec city of Tenochtitlán in 1519, they compared its magnificence to Venice and Istanbul. They were awestruck at the grand causeways that linked the city in the lake with the mainland. They marveled at the busy traffic of boats on the canals and the skyline traced by grand temples and palaces.Historians estimate that 200,000 to 400,000 people lived there, making it one of the largest cities on earth at that time.
Then the Conquistadors destroyed the beauty that was Tenochtitlan!

You will learn of the last 500 years of white supremacist terrorist crimes against our people, of their theft of our lands and its wealth, and their crimes that impoverish us and enriches white people.
Europeans not only stole our land and all of its wealth, they also stole our freedom and our creative energy that would have done great things for humanity over the last 500 years. We base this loss on the proof of 5,000 years of accomplishments through our civilizations.
You will learn of the European-caused holocaust of our people that killed 95% of our population (killing 70 to 100 million of our people on our whole continent) with the terrorist use of smallpox.
You will also learn here how to better understand the ongoing genocide that keeps our people ignorant, divided by European colonial nations (U.S., Canada, Mexico, “Latin America”), divided by the false identities of Hispanic/Latino and Raza/Mestizo, and the oppression caused by the European culture of gangs, imposed poverty, and the white supremacy of the colonial governments of the “Americas” (and their English and Spanish languages) that destroy us.
All of this telling of truth and clarification of our true history and true identity as the Nican Tlaca, as the Indigenous people of this continent (Full-blood and Mixed-blood as one people), is not about creating hate against the Europeans and it does not make us racists for angrily pointing out all of this hidden racist evil done against us, this is about speaking truth so that our people, and white people, will demand justice, will demand the end of colonialism, will demand the liberation of our people and the liberation of our continent from the control of the European settlers on our continent.
