Excerpt originally from the Facebook group description
A 1,500 year old Native American stone mound was about to be bulldozed near Oxford, Alabama, and the earth used for a landfill to build a Sam's Club, a BIG BOX discount store owned by Walmart.
Protesters there have managed to stop the shovels temporarily but 320 acres of Sacred burial grounds, temples and sanctuaries are at risk.
An Oxford City council member reportedly said, “it ain't no sacred site, it was just used to blow smoke signals”!! Me thinks me smells the whiff of Colonialism in the forms of ignorance, Consumerism and Globalization…
