The representation of the catholic diocese in the Us state of Kentucky has apologized for the behavior of students of Covington Catholic High School, a catholic secondary boys ‘ school. There is started an investigation into the behavior of the boys against some of the native Americans on the age, Saturday in Washington, D. C.
The boys, many with a campagnepetje of the American president Donald Trump on (‘Make America Great Again’), names Friday afternoon, part of an annual demonstration against abortion on the steps of the monument of former president Abraham Lincoln. A little further, on the Washington Mall, was at the same time, a mars engaged the attention asked for the situation of the indigenous population of the United States. Images of the collision were this weekend trending topic on Twitter, and the hundreds of thousands shared on social media.
One of the protesters on the indigenous side was faced with one of the young people, who are very close to him and him tight and looked at while the older man on his drum continued to beat, and ceremonial songs continued to sing. The man is tracked down by the American media. Nathan Philips (64) appears except a member of a native community activist and war veteran, so some of the most respected group of Americans.
“The atmosphere was grim and I thought I should get out of here, said Philips Saturday against The Washington Post. “I walked towards the Lincoln Monument as the boy in front of me. I could not side on.’
To see how the boy is looking at provocative manner, for Philips, which, in turn, unperturbed by with sing, while the young crowd around them roars, laughs and cries. According to Philips themselves cried the boys include ‘Build that wall’, a popular slogan at the meeting of the president Trump, which supporters are calling for a limes wall in Mexico.
Us government agencies are already almost a month closed because Trump refuses to agree to budget plans in which the necessary $ 5 billion for the wall is included. The Democrats in the Senate and the House of Representatives reject, in their turn, Trump the money to convert. In the video of the incident, the round is not, incidentally, to hear that the boys have the slogan cry.
“This is indigenous land,” says a visibly emotional Philips afterwards. ‘We hear here, no walls. We have never had. I would like that those guys and their energy used to make America really better to do.’ The organization behind the march, in which Philips participated, we mention the confrontation ‘illustrative of the discourse in the America of president Trump.’
The representation of the diocese of Covington and the school of the boys, who are annually students to the anti-abortusprotest sends, have Saturday a joint statement to the outside. Against the newspaper, The Cincinnati Enquirer, they say: ‘We are investigating the matter and will take appropriate action. That could also mean that the boys from school.’
Congressman Deb Haaland, who, as Philips of native Americans is descended, was Friday one of the speakers at the Indigenous Peoples ‘ March. ‘This hatred, disrespect and intolerance is to show how the general decency is gone under this government’, she writes on Twitter. ‘Heartbreaking.’
