Announcement #2: Rio Arriba County Takes Down Oñate Statue

The Rio Grande Sun just reported that Rio Arriba County staff are taking down the statue of Juan de Oñate this morning, Monday, June 15, hours before a protest rally was scheduled to make that demand. According to rally organizers, the 4:00 pm demonstration will still be held. If and when La Jicarita finds out any more information about the decision to take the statute down I’ll post it in a later article, along with coverage of this afternoon’s demonstration.
