On Indigenous Peoples Day I dragged a coffin filled with about 140 lbs (my body weight) of concrete from my house in Pilsen, Chicago to the Christopher Columbus monument on Columbus Dr. Chicago. Throughout this performance/protest the concrete that was inside the coffin began to crack along the way and ultimately hardly any concrete left by the time I reached the Christopher Columbus Monument, also both of the wheels attached to the coffin were significantly reduced to small portions of their former selves; one even breaking off the coffin towards the end of this action.
