Group protests Columbus Day observance

Protesters disrupt a Columbus Day celebration in Tampa on Monday, calling the ceremonies by the Knights of Columbus and the Sons of Italy a "celebration of genocide." Native People's Information Exchange and the American Indian Movement marched around Columbus Park on Bayshore Boulevard shouting slogans and carrying signs comparing Columbus to Hitler. The protesters were not allowed inside the park, where Mayor Sandy Freedman and U.S. Rep. Sam Gibbons took part in a Columbus Day observance.
