The websites for the Transform Columbus Day Alliance and the Colorado American Indian Movement haven't been updated in months and still feature fliers created before the 2007 parade, which marked the hundredth anniversary of Colorado becoming the first state in the country of creating a day to honor Columbus and resulted in protesters arrested during parade-stalling clashes. No luck either at the reliably radical www.TryWorks.org, where blogger Benjamin Whitmer, a University of Colorado instructor and Ward Churchill supporter, recently shut down operations (for more, go to blogs.westword.com/latestword).
For some of last year's controversies, see Columbus Intimidates Indians? and "Indians Scare Me, Mommy."
The TCD website was finally updated, but apparently not until today, the day of the march.
